NERC Submits Proposed Reliability Standard CIP-002-6

On June 12, 2020, in Docket No. RM20-17-000, NERC submitted a petition for approval of proposed Reliability Standard CIP-002-6 (Cyber Security – BES Cyber System Categorization). Proposed Reliability Standard CIP-002-6 clarifies the criterion for determining which BES Cyber Systems associated with Transmission Owner Control Centers performing the functional obligations of a Transmission Operator fall under the medium impact category. NERC also requests approval of the associated implementation plan, the associated Violation Risk Factors (VRFs) and Violation Severity Levels (VSLs) and the retirement of Commission-approved Reliability Standard CIP-002-5.1a.
