NERC Withdraws Proposed Reliability Standard CIP-002-6

On February 5, 2021, in Docket No. RM20-17-000, NERC submitted to FERC a Notice of Withdrawal for Proposed Reliability Standard CIP-002-6. Proposed Reliability Standard CIP-002-6 would have clarified 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 has decided to withdraw the proposed standard in light of recent cybersecurity events and threats, as it feels additional caution is warranted regarding any criteria that may permit more entities to categorize BES Cyber Systems as low impact.
