Consequence Approach Implementation
• Provision assets based on impact of attack
• Indirect assets
- No direct impact to function, or
- Consequences mitigated prior to impact.
- Includes low impact EP and balance of plant assets
• Direct assets - those not identified as indirect
• Cyber security controls graded

Benefits and Future Applications
• Current approach working well for reactors:
- Achieving desired outcomes (75% or more indirect)
- Permits licensees to focus on high consequence assets
• Improvements if considered for other licensees:
- Not all functions are equally attractive to an adversary
seeking to harm the health and safety of the public
- Prioritize only those assets that if compromised would
likely result in radiological sabotage or theft of SNM
• Best - eliminate any system not directly related to
preventing sabotage, theft of SNM
