Cybersecurity risks exist throughout all aspects of a utility company. The threats are real and the potential attacks are largely unpredictable. There have been several real world examples over the years of security attacks coming in the form of malware being embedded in products purchased, software installed, access given to aid in the deployment of new systems and poor security requirements stemming from the procurement of solutions.
In the very near future, registered utilities will need to address the mandatory requirements in NERC CIP Standards - CIP-013-1. This new requirement introduces 4 key requirements: 1) software integrity and authenticity, (2) vendor remote access, (3) information system planning and (4) vendor risk management and procurement controls.
This webinar explores these 4 key requirements and discuss the potential solutions that would be expected of your organization to satisfy compliance and, more importantly, support a more secure supply chain for your organization.
