Addressing the Cyber Threat to Nuclear Systems, April 13, 2-17, Washington DC, USA

The Northeast Chapter of INMM and the Elliott School of International Affairs at George Washington University are proud to announce that Dr. Page Stoutland will present “Addressing the Cyber Threat to Nuclear Systems" at a lunch time meeting on April 13, 2017 from 12:00 Noon to 2:00 PM in the 6th Floor Lindner Commons at George Washington University’s Elliott School of International Affairs, 1957 E Street NW., Washington, DC

Addressing the Cyber Threat to Nuclear Systems

Cyberattacks are increasingly one of the major threats facing all countries. Systems important for nuclear security are not immune to cyberattacks. Experts have highlighted the vulnerability of nuclear power plant control systems, the risk posed by malevolent insiders to nuclear material accounting systems, the potential for compromise of access control systems, and even the possibility of compromise of nuclear weapons and related systems.

In response, the Nuclear Threat Initiative (www.nti.org) has been working to understand the threat posed by cyberattacks on nuclear systems and to develop recommendations to reduce the risk of catastrophic consequences. This presentation will include discussion of a recent NTI report: Outpacing Cyber Threats: Priorities for Cybersecurity at Nuclear Facilities, as well as the approach being taken to develop a set of policy options to address the cyber threat to nuclear weapons and related systems.

RSVP Required by Monday, April 10th
