In addition to the Order No. 822 directives, the Project 2016-02 Modifications to CIP Standards Drafting Team (SDT) is addressing four issues identified by the CIP Version 5 Transition Advisory Group (V5 TAG). These issues are:
·         Cyber Asset and BES Cyber Asset Definitions;
·         Network and Externally Accessible Devices;
·         Transmission Owner (TO) Control Centers Performing Transmission Operator (TOP) Obligations; and
·         Virtualization
Virtualization of Cyber Assets provides advantages for the availability, resiliency, and reliability of applications and functions hosted in such an environment when implemented in a secure manner. The SDT is offering a series of webinars in an effort to provide a resource for technical information related to several concepts relevant to virtualization. During the first webinar, held on March 21, 2017, the SDT discussed logical isolation and Centralized Management Systems (CMSs), in addition to introducing storage virtualization.
Webinar Objectives
This second webinar will discuss the Hypervisor with a special focus on template considerations, as well as multi-tenancy and the concepts of underlay hardware and Electronic Security Zones. This webinar will also expound on the introduction to storage virtualization provided in the first webinar, to include discussion of storage area networks and the manner in which underlying virtualization concepts are similar to server virtualization. Finally, this webinar will discuss storage virtualization scaling and data leakage.
