​Comments of NERC in Response to Notice of Proposed Rulemaking on CIP-012-1

NERC provides comments on the FERC Notice of Proposed Rulemaking proposing to approve Reliability Standard CIP-012-1 (Cyber Security – Communications between Control Centers). NERC supports the Commission’s proposal to approve the proposed Reliability Standard. However, NERC does not support the Commission’s proposal to direct modifications to the CIP Reliability Standards to: (1) require protections regarding the availability of communication links and data between BES Control Centers; and (2) provide additional specificity on the types of data that must be protected. NERC proposes to conduct a study of the risks to availability of data and communication links between Control Centers to determine an appropriate course of action.​
