Nuclear Cybersecurity – Risks & Remedies


The Fissile Materials Working Group (FMWG) and Stimson Center cordially invite you to the launch of a new joint report, “Nuclear Cybersecurity: Risks and Remedies.”

In an effort to address the gap in cyber nuclear security, the FMWG and Stimson brought together two dozen cyber security experts and stakeholders in the nuclear industry to address the cyber security risks to nuclear infrastructure. This report highlights how Capitol Hill and NGOs can work to mitigate security gaps.

Rep. Bill Foster (D-IL) will provide opening remarks and panelists will then discuss the report, recommendations, and next steps for Congress.

Panelists:
**Eric Chein is currently a Fellow of Symantec’s Security Technology and Response division. He was also a lead co-author on Symantec’s groundbreaking Stuxnet research.
**Debra Decker is a Senior Advisor at the Stimson Center. She has more than 20 years of experience developing policies and managing processes in the private and public sectors and is a subject matter expert in the field of risk management.
**Kathryn Rauhut is an attorney specializing in international security based in Vienna, Austria. She works primarily on nuclear security governance, accountability and liability issues with a focus on cyber security.

The discussion will be moderated by Emily Frye, Director of Cyber Integration at MITRE.

The panel will be followed by a reception.

Co-chaired by Reps. Chuck Fleischmann, Jeff Fortenberry, Bill Foster, and Ben Ray Luján, the CNSWG facilitates bipartisan cooperation to reduce the risk of nuclear and radiological attacks and advance solutions to the most pressing nuclear-security challenges facing the U.S. For more information, please contact Susannah Howieson in Rep.
