The International Critical Infrastructure Security Institute (ICISI) will be a member organization operating as an independent body of multidisciplinary expertise. ICISI’s initial emphasis will be on improving the security state of power generation facilities in the nuclear energy sector. Its mission is the acceleration of implementation of cyber security programs while providing increased regulatory certainty for these plans across the power generation industry. ICISI will focus on four specific program areas:
- Credentialing – ICISI recently announced the launch of its inaugural cybersecurity certification, the ICISI Commercial Nuclear Assessor (ICISI-CNA). This certification is for individuals responsible for the protection of commercial nuclear assets in various parts of the world from cyber-based threats.
- Product validation – more soon
- Training – more soon
- Development of standards that promote consistent implementation and regulatory oversight of cyber security programs – more soon
