CIP-014-2 is a physical security standard to identify and protect Transmission stations, substations and their primary control centers.
According to the North American Electric Reliability Corporation (or NERC), the purpose of this standard is to identify and protect Transmission stations and Transmission substations, and their associated primary control centers, that if rendered inoperable or damaged as a result of a physical attack could result in widespread instability, uncontrolled separation, or Cascading within an Interconnection.
This CIP-014-2 (Critical Infrastructure Protection) standard provides a structured framework that is to help secure critical electrical power grid junctures from high-level physical threats and vulnerabilities in the present and future. When a ballistic barrier meets these standards, it will protect one of the largest industrial machines that is vital for both quality of life and both the local and national economy.
