2nd annual Industrial Control Cybersecurity Nuclear Summit to take place in Birchwood

PRESS RELEASE

2/8/2017

Warrington chosen to host international nuclear conference
2nd annual Industrial Control Cybersecurity Nuclear Summit to take place in Birchwood

Warrington is set to host the second annual Industrial Control Cybersecurity Nuclear Summit on 22nd – 24th May 2017.

Taking place at The Centre, Birchwood Park, the two-day conference will cover pressing cyber security challenges in the nuclear industry, including managing supply chains, preparing for the Internet of Things (IoT) and what public/private partnerships could mean for the sector.

The event, which is aimed at an international audience, will be structured around presentations and debate from some of the world’s leading cyber security experts and authorities in nuclear security.

Past presenters have included the IAEA, ONR, NDA, BEIS, Engie, Lockheed Martin, Airbus, Horizon Nuclear, EDF and Honeywell.

Discussing the conference, event organiser James Nesbitt, Founder of the Cyber Senate said: “The security landscape is changing and the way we protect the safety, reliability and stability of our critical nuclear infrastructure must change with it.

“This event will address several key areas such as how to reduce vulnerability, detect threats and how IT and operational technology can work in synergy to defend nuclear assets. It will also cover wider issues in the industry, such as the growing skills gap. We’ve brought together an impressive range of world experts on these topics who will be sharing best practice and providing insight as to what the future may hold for this sector.”

“Warrington is home to a number of organisations in the nuclear industry, including Sellafield Ltd, AMEC Nuclear, NNL and Rolls Royce Nuclear, so holding the conference here felt like a natural step. These are big issues that affect not just the security of businesses, but of whole nations and events like these are an important way to share best practice and plan for the future.”

UK Government mandates new cyber security standard for suppliers

The government has worked with the Information Assurance for Small and Medium Enterprises (IASME) consortium and the Information Security Forum (ISF) to develop Cyber Essentials, a set of basic technical controls for organisations to use.

Download Cyber Essentials documents here: https://www.cyberstreetwise.com/cyberessentials/

The full scheme, launched on 5 June 2014, enables organisations to gain 1 of 2 new Cyber Essentials badges. It is backed by industry including the Federation of Small Businesses, the CBI and a number of insurance organisations which are offering incentives for businesses.

The Cyber Essentials Requirements document sets out the necessary technical controls. The Assurance Framework shows how the independent assurance process works and the different levels of assessment organisations can apply for to achieve the badges. It also contains guidance for security professionals carrying out the assessments.

From 1 October 2014, government requires all suppliers bidding for certain sensitive and personal information handling contracts to be certified against the Cyber Essentials scheme.

CYBER ESSENTIALS SCHEME
https://www.cyberstreetwise.com/cyberessentials/

The Cyber Essentials scheme provides businesses small and large with clarity on good basic cyber security practice. By focussing on basic cyber hygiene, your company will be better protected from the most common cyber threats.

Cyber Essentials is for all organisations, of all sizes, and in all sectors – we encourage all to adopt the requirements as appropriate to their business. This is not limited to companies in the private sector, but is also applicable to universities, charities, and public sector organisations.

Cyber Essentials is mandatory for central government contracts advertised after 1 October 2014 which involve handling personal information and providing certain ICT products and services. Find out more here.

The Cyber Essentials scheme has been developed as part of the UK’s National Cyber Security Programme and in close consultation with industry.
