The North American Electric Reliability Corporation (NERC) Critical Infrastructure Protection (CIP) standards were introduced to ensure the reliability of the nation’s Bulk Electric System (BES).
The current version of NERC CIP includes eleven critical infrastructure protection cyber security standards, which specify a minimum set of controls and processes that power generation and transmission companies should follow to ensure the reliability and security of the North American power grid.
Deploying traditional IT security controls like firewalls and antivirus is not sufficient for CIP compliance. To meet CIP standards, electric utility owners and operators must also have complete visibility into all Industrial Control System (ICS) assets and network activities.
