Meeting CIP physical and cyber security requirement

The news is full of stories about the latest cyber attacks and data breaches. While there hasn't been any news about a major hack of a power plant or substation yet, that doesn't mean bad agents aren't trying. Watch this short video for an overview of the standards now in place, the level of protection they provide and what you can — and should — be doing to implement those standards.

This video helps you understand the state of cyber security but physical security is also a major concern. Watch the webinar After Metcalf: Physical substation security for details of the attack on that substation and the security methods being deployed to protect physical assets from future attacks.
