What you’ll be doing…


As the OT Cyber Requirements Manager, you will provide direct support to the Cyber Security Senior Manager, the Head of Cyber Security & Information Assurance, and the licensees' Senior Information Risk Owners (SIROs) (via BISOs) to ensure the successful and coherent delivery of cybersecurity on nuclear power stations (in operation, construction, or planning) to protect the integrity of Operational Technology (OT) systems.


You will lead the OT Cyber Requirements Group, which provides deep, niche technical capability in OT cybersecurity. This role requires a good understanding of the underpinning Government regulation and legislation, recognized cybersecurity standards and best practice, including security risk assessment methodologies, and a good technical understanding of cyber threats and related risks. You should also have a good working knowledge of how fleet and risk management are performed across the existing nuclear fleet and within the nuclear new build projects.
