3 INTRODUCTION ABOUT NERC CIP The North American Electric Reliability Council s (NERC) Critical Infrastructure Protection (CIP) Standards identify the minimum requirements to implement and maintain a cyber-security program and to protect those cyber assets deemed critical to the reliability of the North American bulk electric system operation. Utilities that fail to properly address these standards not only risk getting fined millions of dollars, but also risk having a negative impact on shareholder value, customer confidence, and the stable and consistent operation of the power grid. The NERC standard is divided in to eight separate reliability standards: CIP-002: Critical Cyber Asset Identification CIP-003: Security Controls CIP-004: Personnel and Training CIP-005: Electronic Security Perimeter(s) CIP-006: Physical Security of Critical Cyber Assets CIP-007: Systems Security CIP-008: Incident Reporting and Response Planning CIP-009: Recovery Plans for Critical Cyber Assets These eight standards are comprised of fifty-one major requirements, each of which refers to many more specific requirements. This volume of specific requirements includes both technical and managerial controls, much like other industry mandates, such as PCI DSS. These control requirements are applicable to any entity that owns, operates, or uses any portion of the bulk power system. Compliance to these reliability standards is mandatory. The compliance process includes formal NERC audits conducted by the Regional Reliability Councils. The process also requires active self-certification, as well as the periodic reporting of compliance data and the selfreporting of any noncompliance with NERC policies, procedures, or standards. ABOUT BUSINESS SERVICE MANAGEMENT FROM BMC Business Service (BSM) from BMC Software provides a comprehensive and unified platform that simultaneously optimizes IT costs, demonstrates transparency, increases business value, controls risk, and assures quality of service. Delivering an ERP for IT, BSM simplifies, standardizes, and automates IT processes so you can manage business services efficiently across their lifecycle. With BSM, your organization has the trusted information it needs, can prioritize work based on business critical services, and can orchestrate workflow across your core IT management functions. As the recognized leader in BSM, BMC is uniquely positioned to help you succeed in your NERC CIP compliance efforts. BSM offers a unified approach that enables you to govern the delivery of business services throughout their lifecycle, enforce policies, and automate compliance across your entire IT environment mainframe, distributed, virtual, and Cloud. BSM from BMC provides a common and unified platform to identify and secure Critical Cyber Assets as defined in the NERC CIP standards. Integration between products across the BSM portfolio is the cornerstone for addressing the NERC CIP requirements. In some cases, BSM provides both general support and complete support. A good example is ensuring that the Electronic Security Perimeter denies access by default, and that explicit access permissions have been specified. While BSM does not provide firewall functionality specifically, it does provide configuration compliance audit and automated remediation to ensure the Critical Cyber Assets are configured appropriately with regards to discrete access control requirements. In other cases, BSM provides a total solution that integrates governance and risk management, control automation, incident and change management, and policy-based measurement and reporting to resolve the standard requirements in a way that exceeds the capabilities of other solutions. The BSM solution for the NERC CIP Standards is a good example of a complete solution with enhancements in comparison to other solutions. 1

4 Every entity has to define both the intensity of the control and the frequency of the associated tests for many requirements in NERC CIP. BSM from BMC provides options to meet your unique requirements from routinely scheduled audits that identify and alert to real-time monitoring that detects and alerts on relevant events. BMC solutions provide a choice, with integration to the industry s leading IT service management suite of solutions to classify, escalate, and track the resulting incidents. BSM delivers a comprehensive solution that provides the appropriate levels of risk mitigation and superior performance within constraints.
