On 6/18/2020 the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) published a white paper requesting comments on possible voluntary cybersecurity enhancements to augment NERC CIP standards by applying the NIST Cybersecurity Framework (NIST CSF) for cyber controls that would bolster protections for the grid, over and above the NERC standards. The proposal suggest that parties that implement these expanded NIST CSF controls may be eligible for an incentive of 200 basis points for their efforts and investments. On 6/30/2020 Reliable Energy Analytics, LLC filed comments with FERC supporting the proposal contained in the white paper.
