Nuclear Regulatory Commission Virtual Cybersecurity Seminar & Expo

The Nuclear Regulatory Commission’s bi-annual Helpful Applied Cyber Knowledge (HACK) event will be held virtually from NRC Headquarters in Rockville, MD, and streamed live to select audiences.

Cyber-attacks at nuclear power plants don't just happen in Hollywood. That's because places with radioactive materials make incredibly tempting cyber targets.

With this real and ever-present threat, the Information Security Directorate of the Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) works diligently daily to provide technological protection for our nation's people and environment. Part of their comprehensive approach is to convene semiannually for a 1-day NRC Cybersecurity Seminar & Expo with government and industry sessions that focus on what's new and what's next in cyber.

Hosted by the Office of the Chief Information Officer, this event attracts their IT and cyber personnel, as well as their contractors. Internally, NRC promotes the event as "HACK," which stands for "Helpful Applied Cyber Knowledge." Their well-received campaign encourages all NRC technology users to be aware of the impact of their activities on connected devices (both at home and in the workplace) and the threats they may potentially and unknowingly generate.

This event has a long history of solid attendance, and will now allow even more via the virtual platform - expecting 300+ attendees! NRC executives, including the CIO, CISO and Information Security Director, have all attended each expo for the past 2 years. Attendees from the 2019 events included:

  • Developers
  • Engineers
  • IT Analysts and IT Specialists
  • Network Engineers and Mobility Engineers
  • Project Managers
  • Security Analysts and Security Specialists
  • System Administrators
