Impact of Digital Technology on the Nuclear Industry

ABOUT THE COURSE

The course will be covered in two parts.
Day 1 will be dealt with various tools to address uncertainty. Modern Monte Carlo methods and surrogate approaches for uncertainty quantification will be presented. This will also include sensitivity analysis and optimisation under uncertainty. Finally, a few case studies as an application of this will be shown.
Day 2 will cover cyber security. This will include digital technology, cyber security, network security and system-off-system security.

WHO SHOULD ATTEND
Engineers and scientists involved in the design, operation and assessment of nuclear structures

Lecture Content

Lecture 1-5
This will be dealt with various tools to address uncertainty. Modern Monte Carlo methods and
surrogate approaches for uncertainty quantification will be presented. This will also include sensitivity
analysis and optimisation under uncertainty. Finally, a few case studies as an application of this will
be shown.

Lecture 6: Introduction to Digital Technology
Includes basic concepts, principles and processes of computer systems, e.g. computer architecture,
operating systems, networks, distributed systems, software applications such as embedded systems
and databases, software development life cycles, and software qualities such as security and
reliability.

Lecture 7: Introduction to Cyber Security
Covers general concepts, principles and methods of cybersecurity, including security concepts,
security vulnerabilities and threats, security policies and models, access control, personal computer
protection, data encryption and decryption, network security, firewalls and intrusion detection, and
database security

Lecture 8: Network Security
Includes a more focused introduction to network/communication security protection, e.g.
cryptographic concepts, cryptographic systems, digital signatures and public key certifications,
network-based user authentication, secure email systems, secure Internet protocols, virtual private
networks, secure web communication, and wireless security.

Lecture 9: System-of-Systems Security
Covers general security issues and challenges of Interoperations among increasingly integrated
computer systems, e.g. concepts of ubiquitous computing and IoT (Internet of things), component
systems and characteristics, systems composition, security policies and evaluation.
