NTI Hosts Seventh Meeting of Cyber-Nuclear Forum

Save to My Resources

More than 30 cybersecurity experts from nuclear facilities in more than 10 countries discussed practical steps for strengthening cybersecurity at nuclear facilities during the seventh meeting of NTI’s Cyber-Nuclear Forum earlier this month.

Digital systems, including those used for nuclear security and safety, are not immune to cyberattacks. If a nuclear facility’s business networks were compromised, it could lead to the loss of sensitive business and security information; if its control systems were compromised, it could directly affect the safety of the facility.

The Cyber-Nuclear Forum brings together cybersecurity experts from nuclear facilities around the world, enabling them to exchange information and best practices around cybersecurity. It is the only forum of its kind, solely focused on identifying practical measures to prevent a cybersecurity lapse that could jeopardize safety and compromise global confidence in civilian nuclear power as a safe and reliable energy source.

During the June 13-16 Forum meeting near Vienna, Austria, participants focused on ways to respond to the practical challenges presented by emerging technologies and supply chain issues, and how to detect and respond to cyber incidents most effectively.

Generous financial support from a number of nuclear operators “has allowed the Cyber-Nuclear Forum to directly benefit nuclear facilities around the world,” said Page Stoutland, a consultant to NTI who formerly served as vice president of NTI’s Scientific and Technical Affairs program. Stoutland, who organized and attended the Forum meeting, explained, “The Forum has a unique capacity to contribute to the security of nuclear facilities around the world.”

The Forum is expected to meet again virtually in late 2023 and in person in 2024.
