Sure, you can always access them trough the Insights tab of your repository.

On a repository page you have several tabs, like Code and Pull requests for example. Head over to Insights to find the security alerts.

@wrk4all as you can see at the responses above, you are always able to view past security issues.

 

Could you elaborate on what you mean by "reinstating" dismissed ones?
