WHAT IS NERC CIP
The North American Electric Reliability Corporation (NERC) has established mandatory Reliability Standards, including the Critical Infrastructure Protection (CIP) plan. These standards aim to maintain and improve the efficiency of North America’s bulk power system while ensuring its continued security and reliability.
Cyber Assets, which support vital functions and enable processes to communicate with each other across organizations, are now critical to the normal operation of the bulk power system. This opens them up to increased risk.
MegaplanIT’s Assessment of Critical Cyber Assets follows the framework provided by NERC Standards CIP-002-4 through CIP-009-4. We’ll evaluate components against NERC Critical Infrastructure Protection and Cyber Security standards with the goal of identifying and rectifying issues to ensure the continued operation of the bulk power system.
