About the role

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

  • Assessment of duty holders’ security plans to provide confidence that risks are being adequately managed.
  • Undertaking regulatory interventions with duty holders to ensure implementation of arrangements to protect information technology, operational technology and sensitive nuclear information.
  • Conducting inspections of facilities across the nuclear supply chain to ensure information security risks are effectively managed.
  • Contributing to the development of regulatory policy and influencing the development of good practice.
  • Liaison with other regulators (including those in security and safety disciplines) and various Government security and intelligence agencies.
  • Representing ONR at security events and meetings, such as those organised by the International Atomic Energy Agency, the World Institute for Nuclear Security, the Nuclear Institute and those organised directly by the UK Nuclear industry.

Training to expand and deepen knowledge and experience in specific nuclear, cyber security, information assurance and regulatory topics will be given throughout the successful candidate’s career. As experience of regulating nuclear security increases, all inspectors are given the opportunity to progress and achieve promotion.
