SecureState will conduct security assessments of the plans developed to cover transmission stations, transmission substations, and primary control centers, to ensure that proper controls exist to minimize physical, cyber, and operational security risks.
This includes the following assessments:
- Resiliency or security measures designed collectively to deter, detect, delay, assess, communicate, and respond to potential physical threats and vulnerabilities identified during the evaluation conducted in Requirement R4.
- Law enforcement contact and coordination information.
- A timeline for executing the physical security enhancements and modifications specified in the physical security plan.
- Provisions to evaluate evolving physical threats, and their corresponding security measures, to the Transmission station(s), Transmission substation(s), or primary Control Center(s).
SecureState will use information from the R4 assessment to generate site-specific plans for each in-scope facility. SecureState then develops a roadmap that aligns the site physical security plan with CIP 014 requirements.
