CIP Reliability Standards

Critical Infrastructure Protection (CIP) Reliability Standards address the cyber and physical protection of "Critical Cyber Assets."

 

  • Version 1 Standards approved by FERC in Order No. 706 in January 2008.
  •  
  • Versions 2 and 3 made minor corrections and improvements to address concerns identified by FERC, Version 3 now in effect.
  •  
  • Version 4 introduces "bright-line" criteria for identifying protected assets.
  •  
  • Version 5 proposal filed with FERC on January 31, 2013. FERC has yet to act on proposal, but is likely to approve it. Version 5 significantly revises the scope of the CIP Standards and the level of protection applied to protected assets.
