NERC CIP's Most Wanted


The Top Three Most Violated NERC-CIP Standards

As you recall, the North American Electric Reliability Corporation (NERC) is an international, self-regulatory, not-for-profit authority governed by the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC). At its core stands an important goal: to ensure the reliability of the Bulk Electric System (BES) in North America. In 2007, NERC approved Critical Infrastructure Protection (CIP) standards CIP-001 through CIP-009 for new and improved regulatory accountability. NERC CIP carries two primary purposes. The first purpose is to provide a cyber-security framework to ‘identify’ Critical Cyber Assets and the second is to ‘protect’ those assets.


AlertEnterprise, Inc. works closely with companies across the utility spectrum to address and resolve all areas of NERC CIP compliance. Our objective in this paper is to increase awareness of three most violated NERC CIP standards: CIP 001, CIP 002, CIP 004, and the one step you can take to effectively avoid blame as part of NERC’s Most Wanted.
