Description

This CRP will explore key areas such as good practices, technology, analytical methods, and recommended procedures for response including forensic activities for computer security incidents at nuclear facilities. The results of this CRP will be published as a nuclear security non-serialized report and will additionally serve to inform nuclear security guidance and training development.  This CRP provides the opportunity to participate in four activities to enhance computer security incident analysis and response: (1) Operator support for computer security incident recognition and response; (2) Analysis and technology support for computer security incident response; (3) Computer security Information Exchange; and (4) Cyber Crime Investigation.  The objective of this CRP is to conduct activities which improve computer security capabilities at nuclear facilities to support the prevention and detection of, and response to, computer security incidents that have the potential to either directly or indirectly adversely affect nuclear safety and nuclear security.  

Objectives

The primary objective of this CRP is to improved computer security capabilities at the nuclear facilities to support the prevention and detection of, and response to, computer security incidents that have the potential to either directly or indirectly adversely affect nuclear safety and nuclear security. The secondary objective is to establish an international community of experts that will facilitate the exchange of good practices in the field of computer security incident response at nuclear facilities.

Specific objectives

Promote computer security information exchange among Member States

Provide analysis, methods and technologies to support computer security incident response

Provide operator support in computer security incident recognition and response

Support for cyber crime investigation at nuclear facilities
