Dr. Marlene Ladendorff will share insights on the cybersecurity initiatives under way to secure protect digital APR1400 nuclear power reactors in the United Arab Emirates. Ladendorff, who was responsible for building cybersecurity procedures, processes, and programs during the construction and start-up phases of the plants, will give an exclusive look inside the current program at Emirates Nuclear Energy Corporation.

APR1400 Digital Nuclear Reactor Cyber Security

As new builds of the APR1400 digital nuclear power reactors continue construction around the world, applying appropriate cyber security controls to protect them presents a new challenge for nuclear cyber security specialists.  Cyber attacks continue to grow more complex and are increasingly focusing on critical infrastructure equipment.  Additionally, the cyber security defense industry is seeing an upsurge in combined attacks that blend cyber and physical security, resulting in complex incidents that require new security techniques in order to mount an effective defense.  Further complicating the issue, nuclear cyber security may not have the same definition and requirements in different countries around the world.  An ideal situation would be to build cyber security in to the plants as they are being constructed rather than “bolting it on” at a later date. However cyber security is implemented, the goal remains the same: protection against cyber attacks for the plant, the community, and the environment.
