As the Nuclear Security Summit series draws to a close, the prospects dim for development of binding nuclear security standards to assure future safe, secure industry expansion. This event will explore the role that multi-stakeholder, industry-driven voluntary consensus standards could play in the nuclear industry, with a focus on cyber security and other areas of overlap between safety and security.

The discussion will look at opportunities for incentives such as insurance, finance and limited liability to reduce nuclear risk while providing a return on investment to operators.

Direct and indirect market mechanisms such as reputational risk, the SAFETY Act, insurance and nuclear project financing can be used to marshal scarce resources and motivate voluntary implementation of additional security measures based on standards that can be sometimes hard to deliver.

Light breakfast will be available.

Keynote remarks from Anne Harrington, Deputy Administrator for Defense Nuclear Nonproliferation, National Nuclear Security Administration

Followed by an expert panel with  John Bendo, ASME – Brian Finch, Pillsbury Winthrop Shaw Pittman LPP  and  J. Brian De Bruin, Aon Risk Solutions

Including Dan Lipman, Nuclear Energy Institute, and Kathryn Rauhut, Vienna-based attorney
