T8  Cybersecurity Programs: A Consequence-Based Approach

Nuclear power plant cybersecurity programs include digital assets across a wide spectrum of risk significance. However, cybersecurity requirements are not graded by risk significance. This session will address the consequence-based, graded approach to critical digital asset protection, the NEI guidance in which this approach is published, and the positive outcomes provided by this guidance (including burden reduction and greater licensee focus on more risk-significant digital assets). Speakers will also discuss the ongoing efforts needed for full implementation of nuclear power plant cybersecurity programs and cybersecurity in an international context.
