Security Directive for Critical Pipeline Owners and Operators
First announced in 2021, the Security Directive was established in response to cyber-attacks on the Colonial Pipeline, which caused temporary gasoline shortages across much of the East Coast. This new initiative requires critical pipeline owners and operators to audit, identify, and establish updated security protocols for their most at-risk pipeline functions and help mitigate the risk of future cyber or physical attacks. The first step involves owners and operators identifying critical infrastructure as part of their operations by the end of May. These companies will then be required to complete their vulnerability assessments over the next two years, after which they can move to implement the necessary security protocol and processes.
