Statement on FERC's April Open Meeting

WASHINGTON, D.C. – At its open meeting today, the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission issued a final rule approving revised Critical Infrastructure Protection (CIP) Reliability Standard CIP-003-7 - Cyber Security – Security Management Controls.

The revised standard represents the next stage in cyber security standards, improving base-line cyber security posture of responsible entities. The final rule directs NERC to develop modifications to further mitigate the risk of malicious code that could result from third-party transient electronic devices connected to low impact BES cyber systems.

NERC will continue the work with FERC and stakeholders toward assuring the reliability and resilience of the North American bulk power system.
