Automated Security Status Monitoring Procedure

Ibridge has today been awarded a major contract to provide automated tools that will help one of the Nation’s largest electric utilities meet requirement R6 of the new North American Reliability Council (NERC) Critical Infrastructure Protection (CIP) Standard CIP-007.

Ibridge will modify the existing Computer Failure Response (CFR) package, also known as “Buzzard”. The new Buzzard will include monitoring of all nodes of the distributed control system for cyber security related events. Buzzard will provide 24x7 monitoring and will call maintenance personnel when a cyber security anomaly is detected. One important aspect of the package is its ability to be “tuned” in order to provide the maximum security protection while minimizing “false positives”.
