W17  Emerging Cyber Threats to Industrial Control Systems

Industrial control systems (ICS) and other operational technology continue to face growing and evolving cyber threats. Advancements in digital technology have broadened its appeal and applicability throughout the nuclear industry, from digital instrumentation and control to advanced reactors. These applications combined with an evolving cyber threat have the potential to increase a facility's attack surface and expose it to increased cyber risk. This panel will discuss emerging ICS cyber threats and highlight potential mitigative measures to defend nuclear facilities from cyber attacks.
