The application of NERC's "top 10 vulnerabilities of control systems and their associated mitigations" to power plants Conference Paper uri icon


  • On an annual basis, the North American Electric Reliability Council (NERC) Control System Security Working Group (CSSWG) develops a list of the top 10 control system cyber vulnerabilities in the Electric Sector. The 2006 list includes recommended mitigation strategies to reduce the risks for each of these vulnerabilities. This list does not always explicitly address the unique aspects or details important to power plant control systems. This paper addresses those items which the authors' believe need special attention and/or consideration to apply the recommended solutions to power plant control systems.
