The National Cybersecurity Center of Excellence (NCCoE) is soliciting comments on NIST Cybersecurity Practice Guide (Draft) SP 1800-7, Situational Awareness for Electric Utilities. To improve the security of information and operational technology, including industrial control systems, energy companies need mechanisms to capture, transmit, analyze and store real-time or near-real-time data from these networks and systems. With such mechanisms in place, energy providers can more readily detect and remediate anomalous conditions, investigate the chain of events that led to the anomalies, and share findings with other energy companies. Obtaining real-time and near-real-time data from networks also has the benefit of helping to demonstrate compliance with information security standards.
Read the two-page fact sheet or download the revised Situational Awareness Project Description for more information on the project.
