The role of the Cyber Security & Information Assurance Principal Inspector is to lead security regulation activities within the civil nuclear industry to ensure that it manages cyber security and information risks adequately and effectively.  This is achieved primarily through:

Whilst we are expecting candidates to have a mature knowledge and experience of nuclear, cyber security, information assurance and regulatory topics, training to expand and deepen knowledge and experience will be given throughout the successful candidate’s career.  As security regulatory experience increases, all inspectors are given the opportunity to progress and achieve promotion.
