Applying NERC CIP v5 to Your Cybersecurity Strategy
Date / Time: Tuesday, January 26, 2016, 1:00 PM New York / 6:00 PM London
sponsored by
Dan O’Shea, Analyst, Heavy Reading

Amir Barnea, Head of Critical Infrastructure Line of Business, RAD

While NERC CIP v5 covers many aspects of power utility operations including physical safety, standardization and proper documentation, the aspect with which many people are most concerned is the cybersecurity requirements.

This webinar will examine the cybersecurity requirements of NERC CIP and how the requirements will impact communications equipment deployed in operational networks. To help clarify the regulation's sometimes-ambiguous language, we will identify the types of threat(s) each measure is designed to defend, and explain the logic behind the requirements.

We will also consider implementations of the relevant OT communications building blocks such as source authentication, access control, confidentiality, integrity and application-aware (including SCADA) security gateways. We will look at how each of these are best implemented throughout the different layers of the protocol stack and in software vs hardware deployments.
