1 LogRhythm and NERC CIP Compliance The North American Electric Reliability Corporation (NERC) is a nonprofit corporation designed to ensure that the bulk electric system in North America is reliable, adequate and secure. As the federally designated Electric Reliability Organization (ERO) in North America, NERC maintains comprehensive reliability standards that define requirements for planning and operating the collective bulk power system. Among these are the Critical Infrastructure Protection (CIP) Cyber Security Standards, which are intended to ensure the protection of the Critical Cyber Assets that control or effect the reliability of North America s bulk electric systems. In 2006, the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) approved the Security and Reliability Standards proposed by NERC, making the CIP Cyber Security Standards mandatory and enforceable across all users, owners and operators of the bulk-power system. After going into effect in June 2006, initial compliance auditing began in June The collection, management, and analysis of log data are integral to meeting many NERC CIP requirements. IT environments consist of heterogeneous devices, systems, and applications all reporting log data. Millions of individual log entries can be generated daily if not hourly. The task of assembling this information can be overwhelming in itself. The additional requirements of analyzing and reporting on log data render manual processes or homegrown remedies inadequate and costly. LogRhythm has extensive experience in helping organizations improve their overall security and compliance posture while reducing costs. Log collection, archive, and recovery are fully automated across the entire IT infrastructure. LogRhythm automatically performs the first level of log analysis. Log data is categorized, identified, and normalized for easy analysis and reporting. LogRhythm s powerful alerting capability automatically identifies the most critical issues and notifies relevant personnel. LogRhythm s NERC CIP Compliance Package provides out-of-the box assistance in addressing numerous NERC CIP requirements. As part of the NERC CIP Compliance Package, the enterprise assets are categorized according to NERC CIP CIP Critical Cyber Asset Identification standards: Electronic Security Perimeter, Incident Reporting and Planning, Critical Cyber Assets, Malware Systems, Vulnerability Detection, Disposal Logs and Patch Compliance. LogRhythm s NERC CIP Compliance Package provides specific reports designed to meet NERC CIP reporting requirements. Reports are automatically associated with the correct NERC CIP asset categories ensuring only relevant information is reported on. Reports can be scheduled for nightly generation and delivery. Reports can also be generated on demand by the security officer or other LogRhythm users. Investigations and Alarm Rules are also provided for NERC CIP compliance. This allows for immediate analysis of activities that impact the organization s Critical Cyber Assets or Electronic Security Perimeter so areas of non-compliance can be identified in real time.

2 The table below explains how LogRhythm and the NERC CIP Compliance Package address the nine sections of the standard. NERC CIP Section and Purpose CIP-001-1: Sabotage Reporting CIP-002-1: Critical Cyber Asset Identification CIP-003-1: Security Management Controls CIP-004-1: Personnel & Training CIP-005-1: Electronic Security Perimeter(s) CIP and 1a: Physical Security CIP-007-1: Systems Security Management CIP-008-1: Incident Reporting and Response Planning CIP-009-1: Recovery Plans for Critical Cyber Assets LogRhythm Compliance Support LogRhythm identifies attacks in real time by monitoring, classifying, and alarming on events that support the reporting process of CIP in requirements 2 and 3. LogRhythm provides support for identifying systems and their roles that might have otherwise been not accounted for, especially covering requirements and that provide support for critical assets. LogRhythm is a supporting tool for Security Management decision making. The assigned Compliance Monitor will be able to validate controls using LogRhythm. LogRhythm augments personnel training by providing additional eyes on organization activities. The 24x7 monitoring provided by LogRhythm covers areas of awareness that normally personnel cannot. LogRhythm s primary purpose is to provide direct support to monitoring the ESP and Critical Cyber Assets, organizational access controls and other security controls. LogRhythm also supports identification of configuration changes for ESP devices, which augments the strict security configuration requirements. Cyber Vulnerability Assessments are enhanced by LogRhythm s ability to collect detected vulnerabilities during regular functioning activities, providing even greater protection for the organization than a spot-check assessment could. LogRhythm augments existing physical access controls by monitoring logs generated by electronic access systems. LogRhythm provides oversight for almost all requirements of the Systems Security Management standard. LogRhythm addresses CIP directly in order to meet many of the challenges of implementing an effective NERC CIP compliant solution. LogRhythm provides a centralized system for collecting, reporting and alarming on intrusion detection events from both network and host security systems. Centralization of intrusion reporting and response should be an objective for an effective IRR plan. LogRhythm provides an early warning system for system failures that could provide an increase in response time, diagnostic abilities, reduction of downtime and alarm on failure abilities to augment disaster recovery. The tables on the subsequent pages outline how LogRhythm directly meets requirements of the NERC CIP sections. The requirements listed come directly from the NERC CIP compliance documents located at the North American Electric Reliability Corporation s web site ( The How LogRhythm Supports Compliance column describes the capabilities LogRhythm provides that meets supports or augments NERC CIP compliance.
