Thanks for my friend and super sharp energy sector security colleague Tim Deloach for prompting me on this. And if you're going to click through and read it at all, I want you to read this Q&A first for the motivation/urgency/anxiety/terror it produces:
Q: I thought there was an 18-month implementation plan under v4 for newly identified assets?
A: You have a lot of company; many others thought the same thing – but it’s wrong.... Briefly, you have a 12-24 month implementation period under V4 for assets that are newly commissioned. or newly identified after 4/1/2014. But for assets that were in operation as of June 25 of 2012 (the day that FERC Order 761 was published in the Federal
Registry), full compliance with CIP-002-4 through CIP-009-4 is due on 4/1/2014.
Nice job EnergySec and Honeywell, particularly CIP guru Tom Alrich, for the webcast and now for following up with this Q&A infosheet.
