SECURITY & STRATEGIC TRADE MANAGEMENT ACADEMY
Globalization, the rise of transnational terrorism, and ever-advancing tactics among proliferators have given impetus to international action aimed at making trade more secure without impeding a vibrant global marketplace. Transparency about national export and import control laws and procedures is the first step in this direction. Harmonizing concepts and practices across countries is the crucial second step. These cornerstones were the rationale for UN Security Council Resolution 1540 — and for CITS to begin offering comprehensive training on international strategic trade controls through the CITS Security & Strategic Trade Management Academy.
CBRN SECURITY CULTURE BLOG
Over the past several years, the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) has been working on a definition of “nuclear security culture” so that it can be used as a tool to improve the physical protection of nuclear materials and facilities.
This website is designed to serve both as a resource and a forum for nuclear managers, policy-makers and researchers worldwide with the idea of contunuing the dialogue and discussion on nuclear security culture. Our main objective is to support and augment the ongoing IAEA activity by identifying existing trends, perceptions and approaches.
CITS in China
China is a major focus for new international outreach efforts at CITS.
As a massive industrial world power with significant interests in high technology trade, China must be addressed in any strategy for promoting global trade security. CITS places a high priority on promoting security culture in China, and pursues this goal with training workshops, research, corporate outreach, and a specially tailored variant of the Security & Strategic Trade Management Academy.
Director Scott Jones and several researchers have made trips to Beijing and Shenzhen, hosting workshops based on the Security & Strategic Trade Management Academy for a wide array of audiences comprising both industry and government officials.
