The following seven North American Electric Reliability Corporation (NERC) Reliability Standards are available for review:

  • CIP-003-6 – Cyber Security - Security Management Controls
  • CIP-004-6 – Cyber Security - Personnel and Training
  • CIP-006-6 – Cyber Security - Physical Security of BES Cyber Systems
  • CIP-007-6 – Cyber Security - Security Management
  • CIP-009-6 – Cyber Security - Recovery Plans for BES Cyber Systems
  • CIP-010-2 – Cyber Security - Configuration Change Management and Vulnerability Assessments
  • CIP-011-2 –Cyber Security - Information Protection

The Critical Infrastructure Protection (CIP) Reliability Standards are to mitigate the cybersecurity risks to the Bulk Electric System (BES) facilities, systems, and equipment, which, if destroyed, degraded, or otherwise rendered unavailable as a result of a cyber-attack, would affect the reliable operation of the BES.

The deadline is June 26, 2015 to apply to the Ontario Energy Board (OEB) for a review of these standards.

The standards have been posted in the OEB Review of a New or Amended Reliability Standard section.
