Increased concerns for energy grid cyber-security have lead to the development of compliance requirements that must be evaluated by utilities. The North American Electric Reliability Council (NERC) has created Critical Infrastructure Protection (CIP) requirements for all cyber assets supporting the bulk energy system. This paper explores whether the methodologies and tools commonly used for traditional Information Technology (IT) systems are sufficient to meet the cyber-security assessment needs in power systems. This paper reviews these assessment tools to determine their ability to assist in the evaluation of the CIP requirements.
