Gene Kim's Practical Steps to Achieve and Maintain NERC Compliance

White Paper Published By: Tripwire
Published:  Jan 20, 2010
Type:  White Paper
Length:  12 pages

The North American Electric Reliability Corporation (NERC) is responsible for ensuring North America's bulk electric system is secure, adequate and reliable. To meet this challenge, NERC developed Critical Infrastructure Protection (CIP) Cyber Security Standards, which are now mandatory and enforceable. Gene Kim, CTO of Tripwire, describes seven practical steps owners and operators of the bulk power system can take to meet the mandatory IT configuration requirements set forth in the NERC-CIP standards. These steps help owners and operators avoid costly penalties for non-compliance while also protecting the Critical Cyber Assets that control or affect the reliability of North America's bulk electric power system.
