Executive Summary

The original guidelines addressing cyber security in the energy infrastructure are known as NERC 1200 UAS. This standard was passed in 2003, in response to the Homeland Security Act of 2002. It was designed to reduce the overall vulnerability of bulk electric systems to cyber threats. However, NERC 1200 was considered only a temporary fix to the problem. NERC 1300 was subsequently introduced because there was still no consensus on a final set of standards, and it was still another year before NERC Critical Infrastructure Protection (CIP) cyber security standards were passed. NERC CIP spells out an auditable guide covering a variety of areas related to cyber security.
