The North American Electric Reliability Corporation’s (NERC) CIP-005-5 standard outlines regulations regarding electronic security for power and energy plants. This regulation exists as part of a suite of CIP Standards related to cyber security referred to as Version 5 CIP Cyber Security Standards. These regulations were last updated in the spring of 2015 with a strict deadline for implementation by April 2016. 

The standard requirements regarding secure access are represented in two main sections covering “Electronic Security Perimeter” and “Interactive Remote Access Management.” Bomgar’s Privileged Access Management Solution can help organizations to meet these requirements and satisfy CIP V5 mandates.
