AREVA Inc. and Northrop Grumman have joined forces to provide cybersecurity protection support for the nuclear industry. The alliance is in response to the Nuclear Regulatory Commission's call for commercial nuclear facilities to develop and implement cybersecurity plans.

Northrop Grumman's industry-leading cybersecurity capabilities, in concert with AREVA's extensive regulatory experience and decades of serving the nuclear power industry, will help plant operators meet their regulatory obligations established by the commission.

Northrop Grumman has a long history of building defenses against cyber threats with significant understanding of how to minimize risk.

"Protecting the U.S. nuclear power infrastructure from exploitation and attacks of networks, systems, information and physical assets is an industry concern," said Tom Franch, senior vice president of reactors and services, AREVA Inc.

"The value created through this agreement will go a long way in helping our utility customers ensure regulatory compliance with ever-increasing safety requirements and help utilities reinforce public confidence by leveraging advanced instrumentation and control technology."

"We look forward to working with AREVA and combining its nuclear industry capabilities with our significant experience protecting mission-critical operations from cybersecurity threats," said James M. Myers, vice president and general manager of Northrop Grumman's Civil Systems division.
