Talisman personnel are well qualified to assist clients in conducting cyber security program assessments and preparing for the NRC cyber security inspections.
Publication of NRC’s requirements for cyber security places emphasis on identifying vulnerabilities. 10 CFR 73.54 requires that licensees implement a plan to protect each plant against cyber attack. This requires the assessment of current systems, identification of Critical Digital Assets, implementation of cyber security controls, and development of implementing procedures. Utilities have implemented Milestones 1-7 and are implementing Milestone 8.
Of particular importance is the NRC perspective that Talisman personnel bring to the effort, and our ability to support licensees’ interests in having successful cyber security programs.
