Nuclear Flash Drive Goes Missing

 

 

A flash drive containing a safety assessment on the Hartlepool Nuclear Power Plant has been lost by an official from the Office for Nuclear Regulation (ONR). It is understood that the device does not contain any sensitive material, but at the same time, it highlights the issue of transporting data on something that is easily lost.

 

 

According to a spokesperson from EDF Energy who run the nuclear site at Hartlepool, said in a statement;

 

“The reports on the website have slight differences to the full technical versions in that some of the technical language has been simplified to avoid misinterpretation of the information, and more detailed data like site layouts has been removed although we reiterate that the document on the memory stick does not contain any significantly sensitive information.”
