Today’s LiveWire Spotlight looks at the scope expansions in CIP-005-7, CIP-010-4, and CIP-013-2 (the supply chain standards), which will incorporate Electronic Access Control and Monitoring Systems and Physicals Access Control Systems.  The updates conform with FERC Order 850 directing the addition of procurement, remote access, and software source controls to equipment other than BES Cyber Systems.

The initial drafts of CIP-005-7, CIP-010-4, and CIP-013-2 have been posted for a 45-day review and concurrent ballot.  Industry stakeholder comments are due back to the project team by March 11, 2020 and votes must be cast on or before the same day.
