CIP V5 Transition Program
NERC is committed to protecting the bulk power system against cybersecurity compromises that could lead to misoperation or instability. On November 22, 2013, FERC approved Version 5 of the critical infrastructure protection cybersecurity standards (CIP Version 5), which represent significant progress in mitigating cyber risks to the bulk power system.
In 2014, NERC initiated a program to help industry transition directly from the currently enforceable CIP Version 3 standards to CIP Version 5. The goal of the transition program is to improve industry’s understanding of the technical security requirements for CIP Version 5, as well as the expectations for compliance and enforcement.
CIP Guidance and Outreach
The collaborative group of Regional Entities, implementation study participants, and other stakeholders is developing Lessons Learned and FAQ documents to provide guidance on specific topics. These documents will be posted for stakeholder comment on the Implementation Study, Lessons Learned, and FAQs page before they are finalized. Final guidance documents and other related information will also be posted on that page.
In addition to developing these guidance documents, NERC and the Regional Entities are providing a series of CIP workshops and curriculum to further prepare entities for implementation. The CIP Workshops and Curriculum Calendar and Workshops and Curriculum documents provide information about all upcoming events, and the Resources section will house materials from these events and other guidance, as needed.
The CIP Version 5 transition program will be in place through the implementation period of the CIP V5 standards and beyond. Industry input is welcome and should be submitted to
