Establishing and maintaining a robust computer security programme is an essential element of a national nuclear security regime. Over the last several decades there has been a migration to more digital devices, systems, communication, and advanced technologies for nuclear materials, facilities and critical assets, including digital integration to enhance capabilities for more effective and efficient operations. With this increased capability in digital technology, we have also seen a major increase in threats and computer security incidents against the nuclear industry. To defend against the ever-evolving threats, it is vital that computer security is integrated into all aspects of nuclear security including:

• Computer security strategy (legislation)
• Regulation
• Organizational structures with defined roles and responsibilities
• Computer security programmes
• Policy and procedures
• Operations, maintenance and decommissioning
• Response and recovery

In order to do so, it is necessary to identify critical organizational units and key computer security competencies, which will involve State level computer security regulations and requirements with enforcement through competent authorities, and implementation by owners, operators, and third party entities.

This webinar, as the first in the NucSecCyber Series #3, will offer an introduction to these topics.


The aim of this webinar is to:
• Provide an overview of the core elements of a computer security programme for nuclear security
• Introduce the relevant organizational units with responsibilities for establishing a computer security programme
• Offer insights from international experts on their experiences in applying computer security guidance included      in the IAEA Nuclear Security Series.
