Today’s LiveWire Spotlight evaluates the White Paper authored by a group of cybersecurity and compliance experts assessing the generic risk from synchronized attacks on large numbers of low impact BCS from any source – not just through the supply chain.  A series of recommendations has been proposed from its finding – three of which call for CIP standards updates that address the security of networked low impact BCS. 

The initial draft of the Low Impact Criteria Review White Paper has been posted for a 30-day review.  Comments must be submitted to Howard.Gugel@nerc.net by September 12, 2022 using the spreadsheet posted on the RSTC documents page.
