Abstract

While the NISTIR 7628 document covers many significant cybersecurity topics, this User's Guide is focused primarily on the application of NISTIR 7628 Volume 1 in the context of an organization's cybersecurity risk management practices. The User's Guide provides an end-to-end implementation guide for an organization's Smart Grid cybersecurity activities, and references the Department of Energy Electricity Subsector Cybersecurity Risk Management Process to provide the cybersecurity risk management framework and organizational structure needed before system-specific controls identified in NISTIR 7628 can be applied. The User's Guide was developed with significant involvement by utilities.
