Today’s LiveWire Spotlight examines the latest status of Project 2016-02 – Modifications to CIP Standards.  This encompasses the first posting of CIP-002-6, the NERC standard used to categorize BES Cyber Systems as High, Medium, or Low-Impact.  The article also addresses the comments from the initial review of CIP-012-1 which calls for the protection of BES data exchanged between Control Centers.

CIP-002-6 is now posted for a 45-day review and concurrent ballot.  Comments are due back to the project team by 10/30/17.  The feedback and ballot results from the initial version of CIP-012-1 are also available for stakeholder review.
