Addressing NERC CIP Compliance with Owl Data Diode Technology
Virtually all major facilities involved in the North American bulk electric system (BES), including non-nuclear electricity generation, distribution and transmission, are subject to regulation by the North American Electric Reliability Corporation (NERC) Critical Infrastructure Protection (CIP) plan. The essence of NERC CIP is in identifying and protecting those connected Cyber Assets which, if compromised, would have a negative impact on the BES.
Approved by NERC for the use of network segmentation and one-way data transfer, Owl data diodes are currently supporting compliance with CIP v5 and v6, where they are just as important. Data diodes combine absolute information assurance and unhackable cybersecurity with the ability to share and monitor operational data.
