CIP Extension Granted

  • FERC

The implementation of V5 has been delayed until July 1, 2016 to coincide with the initial V6 changes.

While the extension is surely welcomed by many, this should not be seen as an opportunity to take your eye off the ball. Registered entities should keep an April 1 target date and allow themselves to test run their V5/V6 programs and controls. July 1 will approach quickly and security threats, which continue to increase in their frequency and complexity, will not take a three month break.
