On July 21, 2022, the United States Transportation Security Administration (TSA) announced that they have revised and reissued their Security Directive on oil and natural gas pipeline cybersecurity to focus more on performance-based measures. The original Security Directive was published in 2021 following the Colonial Pipeline incident which caused gas shortages across the southeastern United States.
The reissued directive, Security Directive Pipeline-2021-02C (SD02C), focuses on performance-based objectives, rather than prescriptive check boxes, to allow the industry to leverage the processes and technologies that are most appropriate for each company’s unique and dynamic environment.
For pipeline owners and operators to successfully attain these outcomes, they need to have the right people, process and technologies in place. In this webinar, we covered:
· What’s changed in the new Security Directive
· Best practices and timeline for achieving the new objectives
· How Industrial Defender helps pipeline operators establish and prove compliance with the requirements of this Security Directive to TSA upon request
