NRC removing cyber security from dead dsan Onofre nuclear station – but that’s still dangerous

NBC 20th March 2018, With reports of American power plants across the country having their
systems accessed by hackers, one group of scientists are calling out the
Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) and Southern California Edison for
their recent decision to remove enhanced cyber-security systems at the San
Onofre Nuclear Generating Station.

“It defies logic and it’s not
technically sound,” Dr. Edwin Lyman, a Nuclear Scientist with the Union
of Concerned Scientists told NBC 7 Investigates. Scientists like Lyman
point to a report released just last week as evidence for power plant
operators to take cyber-security more seriously, even at closed power
plants like San Onofre.  https://www.nbcsandiego.com/news/local/Scientists-Fear-Cyber-Security-Reduction-Could-Make-San-Onofre-A-Target-for-Hackers-477447193.html
