Hudson Cybertec, cyber security solution provider for the critical infrastructure, amongst the nuclear industry, delivered a cyber security expert as the trainer for the training mission of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) to the Ukraine, during the first week of April. With some 50 participants, the training mission to the Ukraine was a big success.
International Atomic Energy Agency
The International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) is an autonomous organization within the United Nations. The IAEA is an intergovernmental forum for scientific and technical collaboration in the field of nuclear technology and the peaceful use thereof. The IAEA frequently organizes cyber security training to countries that submit a request for that.
Within the timespan of a week, participants to these trainings will be informed of the activities of the IAEA in cyber security and the support the organization can give to the various member states. Trainings are gives by selected cyber security experts from the member states. The training in the Ukraine was delivered by a very experienced trainer of Hudson Cybertec.
The training mission
During the training many modules were given that elaborate on the specific cyber threat for nuclear installations. The participants received
handles during the training, which they can use to improve the protection of their own digital infrastructure against adversaries. The training gives the participants insight into the technical, organizational and human factors on which a well-founded cyber security strategy is built, to keep its environments secure. The guidelines of the IAEA are central to this.
The training was received very well by the participating organizations and all participants. Many participants claimed afterwards that the training helped the various organizational layers of the participating companies to gain more insight and mutual understanding for each other as well as for the threats for nuclear installations.
The participating organizations are delighted that Hudson Cybertec, through its delivery of the trainer for the IAEA training mission, made a significant contribution to increasing security of the nuclear installations in the Ukraine.
