“Tripwire, Inc., a leading global provider of risk-based security and compliance management solutions, today announced the results of a survey on North American Electric Reliability Corporation (NERC) Critical Infrastructure Protection (CIP) compliance. The online survey was conducted from July through September 2013 and evaluated the attitudes of more than 100 IT professionals involved with NERC CIP compliance.
Based on these results, only 30 percent of the industry feel they lack a clear understanding of the standards,” said Patrick Miller, partner and managing principal at The Anfield Group, a critical infrastructure security and compliance consultancy. “In reality, I think that number is higher. After we dig into the details and actually start implementing and auditing NERC CIPv5, I suspect many will realize their initial degree of understanding was overly optimistic.
