The following provides information on the “BES Reliability Operating Services” (BROS) noted in this procedure and the CIP-002 standard.
BROS was introduced in the Guidance and Technical Basis section of the CIP-002 standard, and are based on the NERC Reliability Functional Model. The purpose of the BROS is to assist Responsible Entities (i.e. FPL) in the identification services essential to the reliable operation of the BES asset, and the Cyber Assets associated with those essential services.
For CIP-002 the BROS have been identified as:
