    In partnership with the Nuclear Industry Association: Cyber in the Civil Nuclear Sector

The civil nuclear sector is a vital part of the UK’s Critical National Infrastructure, generating essential electricity supply to homes and businesses. IT systems play an ever-increasing role in nuclear facilities, and as such the industry has seen an increasing threat from cyber-attacks and actors.  

This joint event between techUK and the Nuclear Industry Association (NIA) will assess the effectiveness of the Civil Nuclear Cyber Security Strategy (CNCSS) to date and the plans to move this forward. It will also focus on shared challenges between industries, such as bridging the skills gap and raising awareness of cyber vulnerabilities, particularly with reference to nuclear supply chain companies and the cyber challenges facing SMEs within the nuclear industry.  

Sector specific challenges that could be explored include the cyber security challenges of dealing with High Level Waste (HLW) and the potential for a Geological Disposal Facility with a robust cyber infrastructure. There could also be discussion of the measures being taken to proactively deter, detect, defend against and recover from evolving cyber threats as a critical enabler of the work of the Nuclear Decommissioning Authority (NDA) and how cyber can optimise the NDA Draft business plan as well as the cyber issues associated with the move to the use of smaller reactors.   

Speakers include:

Danny O’Neill, Managing Consultant, Raytheon
