Today’s LiveWire Spotlight examines Draft 1 of the Standards Authorization Request (SAR) for Project 2020-04  – which acts on FERC’s directive to correct a reliability gap in CIP-012-1 that could expose data transmitted outside the Control Center to cyber-attacks.  The project will add controls to CIP-012-2 that assure the end-to-end availability of Real-time Assessment and monitoring data shared between interconnected entities.

The initial draft of the SAR for Project 2020-04: Modifications to CIP-012 and its unofficial comments form have been posted for a 30-day review.  Your feedback is due back to the project team on or before May 11, 2020.
