NERC-CIP Standards and Automated Event Creation

The NERC-CIP Standards govern cyber security for your entity. To remain compliant with all the standards, your entity must provide detailed event logs and compliance reports to one of the eight regional entities empowered to enforce NERC compliance. There is a critical bulk of data that is required for each of NERC CIP Standards and the most efficient way to capture this data is through automated event creation.  The NERC CIP Standards are:

  • CIP-001 Sabotage Reporting

  • CIP-002 Critical Cyber Asset Identification

  • CIP-003 Security Management Controls

  • CIP-004 Training and Personnel Security

  • CIP-005 Electronic Security Perimeter

  • CIP-006 Physical Security of BES Cyber Systems

  • CIP-007 Systems Security Management

  • CIP-008 Incident Reporting and Response Planning

  • CIP-009 Recovery Plans for BES Cyber Systems

  • CIP-010 Configuration Change Management and Vulnerability Assessments

  • CIP-011 Information Protection
