This FGD activity is still in a series of activities with the 2023 Nuclear Safety Seminar and Nuclear Products Exhibition, which will be held from 11 to 12 September 2023.

The FGD theme raised was "Cyber ​​Security in Nuclear Installations and Cyber ​​Security in the Industrial World". This is important to gain a common understanding regarding licensing of non-reactor nuclear installations, forms of threats related to cyber security that exist in nuclear installations and the industrial world, along with solutions.

The activity was opened by the Dean of the Faculty of Engineering, Udayana University, Prof. Ir. Linawati, M.Eng.,Sc.,Ph.D. The FGD activity was attended by seven representatives from BAPETEN, as well as six representatives from the Faculty of Engineering, Udayana University. Apart from that, there are two additional lecturers from the Faculty of Mathematics and Natural Sciences (MIPA).

As a resource person from BAPETEN was Widia Lastana Istanto, S.T., M.T., while from the Faculty of Engineering, Udayana University, the two speakers were I Putu Agus Eka Pratama, S.T., M.T. and Ir. Fajar Purnama, S.T., M.Eng, PhD.
