NERC CIP (Critical Infrastructure Protection) is a cyber security framework that outlines a set of controls, with the goal of securing the assets required for operating the bulk electric system of North America. NERC CIP compliance standards were set by the North American Electric Reliability Corporation (NERC) who decides on mandatory regulations for the critical infrastructure of North America.
Bulk power system owners, operators, and users within North America must comply with NERC approved reliability standards. These organizations are required to register with NERC through the appropriate regional entity in their area.
NERC CIP consists of 12 required control families, with another 4 that are subject to enforcement in the future.
