Today’s LiveWire Spotlight examines the Standards Authorization Request (SAR) for Project 2023-04, which initiates a development effort to modify the low-impact cyber security requirements to address aspects of networked remote access to and between assets with external routable connectivity.  The SAR acts on the recommendations from a white paper issued by the Low Impact Criteria Review Team to assess the threat posed by synchronized attacks on large numbers of low impact BCS. 

The initial draft of the Standards Authorization Request and supporting materials for Project 2023-04 – Low-Impact Coordinated Cyber Attack Controls has been posted for a 45-day review.  Comments are due back to the project team by May 15, 2023.
