NRC Issues Draft Regulatory Guide on Cyber Security Programs

The NRC has issued for public comment a draft regulatory guide, DG-5061, “Cyber Security Programs for Nuclear Power Reactors,” providing guidance on meeting cyber security requirements embodied in 10 C.F.R. Part 73. DG-5061 is a proposed revision to Regulatory Guide 5.71, the current guidance document related to cyber security compliance. DG-5061 incorporates lessons learned from operating experience since Regulatory Guide 5.71 was published. Specifically, DG-5061 clarifies issues identified from cyber security milestone inspections, additional insights gained through the Security Frequently Asked Questions (SFAQs) process, documented cyber security attacks, new technologies and new regulations. Public comments on this draft guidance document are due by October 22, 2018.
