Today’s LiveWire Spotlight explores FERC’s Notice of Proposed Rulemaking to approve seven Cyber Security (CIP) standards. Although the Commission has found that all directives in Order 791 have been satisfied, they expect to add one that requires the protection of supply chains supporting the delivery of BES systems and services.

FERC’s proposal to accept the CIP Version 6 standards is posted for a 60 day public review. Clients have until 9/21/15 to submit comments on the NOPR or to respond to the Commission’s issues raised in Docket RM15-14-000.
