Protection Measure

Measures (including structural, technical and administrative protective measures) taken to prevent an adversary from achieving an undesirable consequence (such as radiological sabotage, or the unauthorized removal of nuclear or other radioactive material in use, storage or transport) and to mitigate or minimize the consequences if the adversary initiates such a malicious act ( IAEA Glossary 2014).
