NERC Submits Proposed Reliability Standard CIP-012-1

On September 18, 2018, in Docket No. RM18-20-000, NERC submitted a petition for approval of proposed Reliability Standard CIP-012-1 (Cyber Security - Communications between Control Centers). This proposed Reliability Standard addresses FERC’s directive in Order No. 822 to modify the Critical Infrastructure Program (CIP) Reliability Standards to require Responsible Entities to implement controls to protect communication links and sensitive Bulk Electric System (BES) data communicated between BES Control Centers. Proposed Reliability Standard CIP-012-1 requires Responsible Entities to develop a plan to mitigate the risks posed by unauthorized modification (integrity) and unauthorized disclosure (confidentiality) of Real-time Assessment and Real-time monitoring data.
