Today’s LiveWire Spotlight addresses the MRO’s proposed Implementation Guidance on the first two requirements of CIP-010-2, which deal with BES Cyber System configuration change management and configuration monitoring.  The document offers automated, manual, or hybrid methods of compliance in a series of tables developed for R1 and R2 and each of their 13 underlying parts.

As of July 23, 2020, The ERO Enterprise has officially endorsed twenty-nine guidelines related to the CIP, FAC, MOD, PRC, TOP, and TPL standards.  Eight others addressing some of the most complex NERC requirements are under consideration.
