Hello Fellow CIP Followers,


Jerome Farquharson of Burns & McDonnell presented on NERC CIP Today and Future at the OSIsoft T&D users group meeting last week in NOLA.

In addition to review of the threat landscape, Jerome tackles a number of moving parts in the CIP standards.  The topics include a roundup of recent changes and some with hard yards yet to go in the standards process:

  • Lessons learned from attacks on Ukrainian T&D operators
  • Transient cyber assets and removable media
  • Cloud and Virtualization
  • Control Centers and Low Impact
  • Vendor Remote Access
  • Supply Chain
  • Electronic and Physical Access Control
  • Potential futures in CIP version 7
