In 2015 the Ukraine Power Grid was hit by large-scale breakdown, leaving 220 000 people without electricity for several hours. The cause was later identified as a cyber attack which interfered with the automated control system. The North American Electric Reliability Corporation (NERC) is an international regulatory authority whose mission is to assure the reliability of the bulk power system in North America. In 2009, NERC issued a public notice addressing the low level of protection of the electric grid against cyber attacks. NERC has developed a set of standards for Critical Infrastructure Protection (CIP) which providers of electric utilities are enforced to comply with. Our solution can help you meet several of the NERC CIP requirements.
- CIP 005-5 ELECTRONIC SECURITY
- CIP 007-6 SYSTEMS SECURITY MANAGEMENT
- CIP 008-5 INCIDENT REPORTING AND RESPONSE PLANNING
- CIP-010-2 CONFIGURATION CHANGE MANAGEMENT
The consequences of a cyber attack against nuclear power plants poses an immense risk against public health and safety. A nuclear power plant is controlled by a large amount of industrial control systems which each and everyone needs protection. In the U.S. nuclear power plants are regulated by the NRC and NERC CIP. Our solution can help you meet several of the requirements from both NRC and NERC CIP.
