“The National Cyber Security Strategy set out the Government’s overarching plan “to make Britain confident, capable and resilient in a fast-moving digital world.”2 This strategy specifically supports the Government in ensuring that the UK has a secure and resilient energy system, by ensuring that the civil nuclear sector is able to defend against, recover from, and is resilient to evolving cyber threats. This enables the sector to continue to produce secure, affordable and clean energy. The strategy will also support the safe, responsible and cost effective management of the UK’s energy legacy. This strategy sets out a path to keeping the UK civil nuclear sector ahead of rapidly evolving threats to, and vulnerabilities in, software and equipment in the next five years.”
The Cyber Senate 2nd Annual ICS Cyber Security Nuclear Summit will take place in Warrington on May 22-24th.
