The complaint, filed on May 12, 2020, claims that (1) CIP-013-1 (Cyber Security Supply Chain Risk Management) does not comport with Presidential Executive Order 13920 and (2) that the Reliability Standard does not fully address the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) Cybersecurity Framework.
