This publication provides guidance specific to nuclear facilities on implementing a computer security programme and evaluating existing programmes. The use of computer systems to cover an increasing range of functions at nuclear facilities introduces new vulnerabilities that could seriously endanger nuclear security if not addressed in a rigorous and balanced manner. Digital systems are being increasingly introduced in safety, safety-related and security systems throughout facilities. Non-availability or malfunction of these systems can seriously impact nuclear safety and security, and potentially facilitate sabotage of the facility and/or theft of material. Computer security must, therefore, be a key component of overall facility security.
