On December 29, 2009, FERC submitted a compliance filing in Docket No. RD09-7-000 in response to FERC’s September 30, 2009 Order approving Version 2 of the Critical Infrastructure Protection (“CIP”) Reliability Standards.  In its compliance filing, NERC requests that FERC approve: 


(1) the Version 3 CIP Reliability Standards;

(2) a revised Implementation Plan for Newly Identified Critical Cyber Assets and Newly Registered Entities and the Implementation Plan for Version 3 of the Cyber Security Standards CIP-002-3 through CIP-009-3 that addresses FERC's directives in the Version 2 CIP Order; and 

(3) an update of the timetable that reflects the plan to address the remaining FERC directives from Order No. 706.
