NERC CIP Compliance for Low Impact BES Cyber Systems

By Jeff Pack

ABSTRACT

Responsible Entities (as defined by NERC) have finalized their approach for NERC CIP Version 5 Standards for High and Medium Impact BES Cyber Systems.

Now they face a deadline for enforcement for Low Impact BES Cyber Systems as documented in the proposed NERC CIP-003-6 Reliability Standard around four major areas: Cyber Security Awareness, Physical Security Controls, Electronic Access Controls and Cyber Security Incident Response.

This paper discusses the potential impact from these new requirements and the steps that Responsible Entities should take now to plan a smooth implementation and assessment for their Low Impact BES Cyber Systems.
