On June 30, 2009, NERC submitted modified violation severity levels (VSLs) for eight cyber-security-related Critical Infrastructure Protection (CIP) Reliability Standards (i.e., CIP-002-1 through CIP-009-1), which were approved by FERC in Order No. 706.  In approving these cyber-security-related standards, however, FERC also directed NERC to develop modifications their VSLs in order to address specific concerns of the Commission.  To view NERC’s compliance filing, click here.
