Today’s LiveWire Spotlight looks at the initial posting of CIP-003-X by the Standards Development Team for Project 2020-03: Supply Chain Low Impact Revisions.  It calls for the owners and operators of low impact BES Cyber Systems to create a policy document and execute associated plans that assure that measures to control vendor remote access are in place.

The initial draft of the CIP-003-X and its supporting materials have been posted for a 45-day review and concurrent ballot.  Clients have until October 11, 2021 to return their comments back to the drafting team and to place their votes.
