NERC CIP V5 Standards and Unidirectional Network Protection

NERC CIP V5 Standards and Unidirectional Network Protection

Stronger Security Simplifies Compliance

Stronger Security Simplifies Compliance

NERC CIP V5 Standards Whitepaper
The North American Electric Reliability Corporation Critical Infrastructure Protection Standards (NERC CIP) which regulates the cyber security programs for the North American electric power sector, are considered a model of cyber security for other industrial sectors and critical infrastructure around the world. In this eBook, we have analysed the most updated version of the NERC CIP V5 standards and present the operational reliability and cost benefits of implementing Unidirectional Security Gateways as depicted in the standards. 

The CIP V5 Standards position Unidirectional Gateways as stronger and more secure network perimeter security as compared to firewalls and network intrusion detection systems. The Standards have just over 100 requirements and with the implementation of Unidirectional Gateways, an organisation is exempt from nearly 40% of those requirements. Download the whitepaper to read more about how Waterfall’s Unidirectional technology can simplify compliance, improve reliability, reduce cost and provide absolute protection to industrial networks in an ever-evolving threat environment.
