The nuclear energy industry has seen wider applications of digital technologies. These advanced technologies are intended to improve the efficiency and safety of Nuclear Power Plants (NPPs). However, recent industry experiences have shown that the use of such technologies can lead to unexpected events, specifically an increase in cybersecurity risk. Past cyber incidents include the one at Davis Besse nuclear power plant in 2003, caused by the infection of the process control network by the Slammer worm through a remote connection, the one at Browns Ferry nuclear power plant in 2006, caused by the failures of the controllers for two critical reactor components due to traffic overwhelming, and the one at Hatch nuclear power plant in 2008, caused by the interruption of the process control network due to business network update.
