Lessons Learned from Initial Full Implementation Inspections of Nuclear Power Plants in the USA

In 2010, the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission issued Regulatory Guide (RG) 5.71 to provide an approach that the NRC staff deemed acceptable for complying with the Commission’s regulations regarding the protection of digital computers, communication systems, and networks from cyber attacks. Currently the NRC staff is performing inspections for the full implementation of cyber security programs at operating nuclear power plants. Feedback from the nuclear industry and the inspection teams and the use of additional guidance documents based on RG 5.71 provided lessons learned regarding the use of RG 5.71 in implementing cyber security plans. The lessons learned shared in this paper can be used for generating guidance for implementation of cyber security plans at facilities using industrial control technology.
Learning Objectives for Attendees:
  • Discuss cyber security threats facing nuclear power plants
  • Review and analyze NRC cyber security controls
  • Discuss NRC cyber security inspection techniques and interpretations
  • Discuss key implementation strategies for RG 5.71 and other guidance documents
  • Review lessons learned from initial full implementation inspections at Nuclear Power plants in the USA.
