- Filter By Electric Reliability Law Blog
On June 24, 2013, in Docket No. RM13-5, NERC submitted comments in response to FERC’s April 18, 2013 Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (NOPR) regarding NERC’s proposed Version 5 Critical Infrastructure Protection (CIP Version 5) Reliability Standards. The proposed Reliability Standards, which pertain to the cyber security of the bulk electric system, represent an improvement over the current Commission-approved CIP Reliability Standards as they adopt new cyber security controls and extend the scope of the systems that are protected by the CIP Reliability Standards.
In its comments, NERC supports FERC’s proposal to approve the proposed CIP Version 5 Reliability Standards and commends FERC’s efforts. NERC requests that FERC approve the proposed CIP Version 5 Reliability Standards as filed.
