Cyber-security company WizNucleus said this week that it has released a new version of its Cyberwiz-Pro (CWP) software.
The company said this new version supports the latest revision of Nuclear Energy Institute, NEI 13-10, involving the NEI's Milestone Cyber Asset Assessment process, which requires that nuclear power plants evaluate the cyber-security strength of each critical digital asset (CDA) at least every two years to ensure that all necessary security controls are in place and functional.
"The combination of incorporating the NEI 13-10 guidance and streamlining techniques such as type assessments into CWP allows nuclear companies to reduce the effort it takes to become inspection-ready," WizNucleus CEO Krish Shetty said. "Our ability to help customers optimize their Security Control Implementation Strategy (SCIS) and configure it into CWP provides a powerful overall solution for a sustainable and efficient compliance program across the fleet."
"Type assessment" refers to the characterization of CDAs based on common characteristics, allowing efficiency within the process for nuclear plants.
The company will demonstrate the new version at the Cyber Security Implementation Workshop in Seattle March 1-3.
