Report says nuclear power plants are ill prepared for the emerging cyber-threats

A report from the Nuclear Threat Initiative (NTI) looks at whether and how states are protecting their nuclear facilities against cyber-threats. It is underlined in the report that nuclear facilities are increasingly digitized, and, as such, vulnerable to  cyber-attacks. The analysis performed by NTI shows that ‘although some countries have been taking steps to protect nuclear facilities from cyber-attacks, many do not yet have the laws and regulations needed to provide effective cybersecurity’ . Additionally, the report concludes that nuclear facilities are not adequately prepared for the growing cyber-threat.
