"I believe that international experience including technical standards and guidelines is in demand for mitigating the challenge of ensuring cybersecurity at nuclear power plants. The key organizations in promoting cybersecurity standards are the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) and the IAEA. To ensure the competitiveness of solutions for industrial control systems of NPPs, it is necessary not only to apply international experience in cyber security, but also intensively participate in the work on documents within these frameworks, promoting advanced domestic solutions to the international level, achieving the leading positions," — leading researcher at the V.A. Trapeznikov Institute of Control Sciencies, Russian Academy of Science Vitaliy Promyslov.
