Lieberman Software Helps Utilities Meet NERC Critical Infrastructure Protection (CIP) Standards




LOS ANGELES, CA — (Marketwired) — 07/11/17 — Lieberman Software Corporation today announced how its helps utilities in critical national infrastructure industries — such as water, power, oil and gas — meet US federal government cyber security regulations. Details are provided in the new white paper .

“Cyber attacks on utilities are most often attributed to nation states and radical elements who are looking for attention, physical dominance and access to intellectual property,” said Philip Lieberman, President and CEO of Lieberman Software. “What previously had been simple probing of security weaknesses has evolved into actual concerted warfare against real targets that affect US citizens on a daily basis: the providers of critical national infrastructure such as water and power.”

The North American Electric Reliability Corporation (NERC) is committed to protecting utilities against cyber attacks that could lead to malfunctions or instability, through its NERC Critical Infrastructure Protection (CIP) cybersecurity standards (). Penalties for non-compliance with NERC CIP can include fines, sanctions or other actions.

These standards require utility owners, operators and users to:

Identify critical IT assets and regularly perform a risk analysis of those assets

Establish policies for monitoring and changing the configuration of critical IT assets

Enforce IT controls protecting access to critical cyber assets

Deploy systems for monitoring cyber security events

The Lieberman RED Suite lowers the cost and uncertainty of NERC CIP compliance by:

Discovering and changing default passwords on existing and new hardware and software assets

Maintaining minimum complexity and change frequency standards for privileged account passwords

Providing authoritative audit trails of privileged access requests on systems and applications

Proving that individuals who are terminated or change job roles no longer have access

Enforcing system access controls

Maintaining an accurate inventory of systems and accounts — and how they are used

Preventing malicious code from executing
