Defining terrorism itself has proven to be difficult, yet the threat it poses to the nuclear sector is rather clear. Anita Nilsson posits that there is a need to worry about this threat, for the international community understands the dire consequences from stolen or lost material. Fortunately, she explains, there have been several legal instruments implemented to address this threat at the international level. The UN has developed a platform under which the essential elements of nuclear security exist, and the IAEA has developed practices that follow these elements. However, these practices are not perfect; the IAEA has a shortage of funding, and strides must be made in networking to create a global security framework whilst keeping sensitive information confidential.
