Nuclear security measures refer to a wide range of actions to prevent theft or diversion of nuclear material or sabotage at an installation or in transit. They could include physical protection measures, material control and accounting, personnel reliability screening, and training. A broader understanding of nuclear security also includes measures to prevent and detect illicit trafficking -- cargo inspections, border security, and interdiction measures.   The U.S. government has worked for more than a decade both domestically and in partnership with other countries to address this problem through multiple programs at the Depts. of Defense (DOD), Energy (DOE), Homeland Security (DHS), and State. The International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) has also played a lead role in these efforts, particularly since the 9/11 terrorist attacks.
