Today’s LiveWire Spotlight examines the first postings of two updated CIP standards related to BES Cyber System identification and securitization. The modifications address issues raised by the CIP Version 5 Transition Advisory Group (V5TAG), the Standards Development Team (SDT) for Project 2015-09, and FERC Order 843.

The initial drafts of CIP-002-6, CIP-003-8, and their supporting materials have been posted a 45-day review period and concurrent ballot. Clients have until October 9, 2018 to provide their comments back to the drafting team and place their ballots.
