Today’s LiveWire Spotlight is the second of two articles examining the updates made to five Critical Infrastructure Protection (CIP) standards in response to the last open directives from FERC Order 791. Today’s article looks at the sections of the four “Medium/High-Impact” standards governing the protection of Transient Cyber Assets and Removable Media.

The first drafts of the four CIP v7 standards related to transient electronic devices are posted on NERC’s web site for a 45 day industry stakeholder review and concurrent ballot. Comments must be returned and ballots cast by January 8, 2015.
