Tuesday was an interesting day. Mike Assante, NERC’s Vice President and Chief Security Officer, issued a letter on the status of CIP-002 – Critical Asset Identification. http://www.nerc.com/fileUploads/File/News/CIP-002-Identification-Letter-040709.pdf
With the recent flurry of discussions dealing with legislation, Smart Grid, etc, I thought I should update the information that will be discussed at the October ACS Control System Cyber Security Conference:
March 19, FERC issued their proposed policy and action plan on Smart Grid. The proposed FERC policy will require the sharing of information associated with smart grid deployments with the Smart Grid Clearinghouse being developed by the Department of Energy.
