BES Cyber Systems
CRSI utilizes a set of custom tools developed for our experts to use when leading our utility clients in accurately identifying and documenting the risk associated with BES Cyber Systems for high, medium, and low impact assets. Whether it is for your control center(s), transmission substations, or generation fleet, the CRSI consulting team applies the necessary tools and closely collaborates with your engineering and transmission staff to produce the required categorization and listings of your BES Cyber Systems to fully comply with NERC CIP-002 R1 through R1.3.
CRSI works side-by-side with your team, interviewing personnel to identify capabilities and functions of Cyber Assets to provide justifications for decisions regarding a Cyber Asset’s ability to adversely impact or not impact on the reliability of the BES within 15 minutes. Once identified, CRSI guides your team in the production of detailed process documents and workflow charts that clearly define the process used for BES Cyber System Categorization. When completing the categorization, CRSI consultants consider:
- Dynamic Response to BES Conditions
- Balancing Load and Generation
- Controlling Frequency (Real Power)
- Controlling Voltage (Reactive Power)
- Managing Constraints
- Monitoring and Control
- Restoration of the BES
- Situational Awareness
- Inter-Entity Real-Time Coordination and Communication
