The National Institute of Standards and Technology‘s National Cybersecurity Center of Excellence has opened the comment period for a draft guide on access control measures for energy companies to reduce cyber risk.

NIST said Tuesday the “Identity and Access Management for Electric Utilities” guide is based on NCCoE’s discussions with the energy sector on cybersecurity challenges.

“The guide demonstrates how organizations can reduce their risk and gain efficiencies in identity and access management,” said Donna Dodson, NCCoE director and NIST associate director for cybersecurity.

According to NIST, the draft guide provides end-to-end identity management solutions and a use-case scenario of a security challenge encountered in day-to-day operations.

The agency will accept public comments on the guide through Oct. 23.
