Nuclear Cyber Security

Worldwide critical infrastructure, including nuclear, is vulnerable to targeted cyber exploits and intrusion, which threaten national security, the economy and in some cases citizen safety. Nuclear materials and facilities are inextricably linked to the cybersecurity of the nuclear command and control environment.

These environments are complicated by instrumentation and controls that are continuously connected with information technology and wireless communications. We recognize that an integrated cyber-physical security approach is essential to address the resiliency of the nuclear installation and continuity of operations.

Robust and resilient solutions require access to multidisciplinary teams, realistic systems, large-scale proving grounds, and innovative cyber talent that can navigate multiple classification domains and the “dark web” of cyber threats.​

INL’s world-leading cyber and industrial control systems security experts work with the international nuclear community to assist them in meeting the unique demands of these operational nuclear environments.
