Phil ODonnell Manager, Operations and Planning Audits EOP Reminder April 18, 2013
4 EOP REMINDER EOP is effective July 1, 2013 R1 requires all TOPs to have a Restoration Plan Approved by the RC on that date. The RCs related restoration standard EOP-006 specifies what they must do for a review of the TOP plans and gives them 30 days to complete the review.
5 EOP REMINDER As a reminder If TOPs do not provide your restoration plans to the RC by June 1, 2013 it will be a challenge for you as a TOP to be compliant on July 1. The compliance expectation is for all TOPs to have an RC approved plan on July 1, –If the TOP does not have an approved plan on July 1 due to late submittal of its plans for review to the RC it will be considered as non compliant for R1.

9 142 FERC ¶ 61,204 Docket No. RD o Remanding CIP R3 Interpretation o Impact on WECC CIP Audit Approach Update on NERC Transition Guidance for CIP Agenda
10 Original interpretation was filed under CIP-002-3a R3. Although some language in the interpretation refers to CIP R3 (e.g., Section 4, p. 2), Sections 6 & 13 clarify the interpretation also applies to CIP R2 (FERC Order, 2013, pp. 4, 6) FERC agreed with NERC Q1 interpretation, but considered NERC Q2 interpretation to be faulty (FERC Order, 2013, Section 10, p. 5) However, the order remands entire NERC interpretation on CIP R2 as the original interpretation was approved on one balloting (FERC Order, 2013, Footnote 12, p. 5) 142 FERC ¶ 61,204 Docket No. RD
11 Laptops were primarily cited as an example, "the proposed interpretation fails to consider that a computer (e.g., a laptop) used by utility staff or contractors to control the functions and operations of a Critical Asset is, during such usage, 'inherent to or necessary for the operation of a Critical Asset,' and thus falls within the scope of CIP-002-4, Requirement R2" (FERC Order, Section 13, pp. 5-6). laptop computers connected to an EMS network through the Internet and used to supervise control, optimize, and manage generation and transmission systems would be considered essential (FERC Order, 2013, Section 17, p. 7) In addition, FERC stated the NERC Q2 interpretation and petition do not provide adequate justification for leaving unprotected cyber assets (e.g., laptop computers) essential to the operation of associated Critical Assets (FERC Order, 2013, Section 18, p. 7) 142 FERC ¶ 61,204 Docket No. RD
12 Minimal impact to WECC Audit Approach by FERC order on Q1 WECC Audit Approach considers the examples discussed in the Q1 interpretation: o As illustrative, not prescriptive, and o Provide a minimal list of Cyber Assets, associated with each Critical Asset identified pursuant to CIP R1, that should be considered relative to CIP R2, but o Do not represent an exhaustive list of Cyber Assets that must be considered under CIP R2 Impact on WECC CIP Audit Approach [Q1]
13 Burden to demonstrate essentiality of Cyber Assets for operation of Critical Assets pursuant to CIP R2 still lies on entity shoulders. Due diligence in light of the FERC order indicates entities should: o Consider definition of essential (NERC, Identifying Critical Cyber Assets, Section C, pp. 7-8) in Critical Cyber Asset Identification [CCAID] methodology o Apply definition to inventory of Cyber Assets associated with each Critical Asset identified and documented pursuant to R2 o Include an evaluation of all laptops, smart phones, and any other Cyber Assets which may be configured for or are capable of, controlling generation or transmission systems and meets one or more of the qualifying characteristics cited above o Document all evaluations and CCA/non-CCA status of the inventory of all Cyber Assets associated with each Critical Asset identified pursuant to CIP R1 Impact on WECC CIP Audit Approach [Q2]
14 During todays (April 18, 2013) FERC Sunshine Meeting, FERC proposed a NOPR that would require Registered Entities to maintain compliance efforts with CIP version 3 until CIP version 5 is Approved o NERC has advised a period of discussion to consider the FERC action and develop a common approach to future compliance efforts across all regions More details in light of the FERC proposal and its impact relative to the WECC Audit Approach will be forthcoming at the June CIPUG in Portland See you there NERC CIP Transition Guidance

18 Processes to ensure and document that all Cyber Assets within an Electronic Security Perimeter (ESP) also reside within an identified Physical Security Perimeter. Where a completely enclosed (six-wall) border cannot be established, the Responsible Entity shall deploy and document alternative measures to control physical access to the Critical Cyber Assets. CIP R1.1 Requirement
19 … Since wiring is not included in the definition of Cyber Asset, Requirement R1.1 of CIP does not apply to wiring. CIP-006 R1.1 NERC Interpretation Response Summary (CIP-006-4) E-7_Order_Remaning_CIP-006-4_ pdf
…We do not agree that the network cabling (i.e., wires) that gives a communication network its networking capability would be exempt from the CIP Reliability Standards… CIP-006 R1.1 FERC Remand- Summary E-7_Order_Remaning_CIP-006-4_ pdf
21 21 … For Electronic Security Perimeter wiring external to a Physical Security Perimeter, the drafting team interprets the Requirement R1.1 as not limited to measures that are physical in nature. The alternative measures may be physical or logical, on the condition that they provide security equivalent or better to a completely enclosed (six-wall). Alternative physical control measures may include, but are not limited to, multiple physical access control layers within a non-public, controlled space. Alternative logical control measures may include, but are not limited to, data encryption and/or circuit monitoring to detect unauthorized access or physical tampering. CIP R1.1 NERC Existing Interpretation [Approved by FERC] E-7_Order_Remaning_CIP-006-4_ pdf
First, by its plain language, the existing interpretation clearly applies to Electronic Security Perimeter wiring. Second, NERC states in the petition supporting the existing Commission- approved interpretation that the interpretation request [in Docket No. RM ] discusses connections between multiple Physical Security Perimeters that reside within a single Electronic Security Perimeter. o Description of Extended ESP – WECC Audit Staff CIP-006 R1.1 FERC Remand- Summary E-7_Order_Remaning_CIP-006-4_ pdf

25 Doesnt change Require encryption or other appropriate controls to interconnect ESPs through multiple PSPs (Extended ESP concept) Discrete ESPs must have CIP-005 Access Points at each discrete ESP location. Cabling in between discrete ESPs is exempt from audit (encryption is always a good practice) WECC Audit Approach
