To combat the increasing number of cyber attacks targeted at critical infrastructure, the Department of Homeland Security's Transportation Security Administration (TSA) has issued three security directives in 2021-22 to increase security posture of owners and operators of gas and liquid pipelines in the USA. TSA’s third directive (Security Directive Pipeline-2021-02C) is effective as of July 27, 2022 and supersedes TSA’s second Pipeline Security Directive published in July 2021.
The reissued security directive takes a performance-based approach to enhancing security, allowing operators to leverage new technologies and be more adaptive to changing environments. It’s a misconception that it has looser regulations. Rather, TSA is providing more flexibility to implement the requirements and achieve the ultimate objective of cyber hardening the critical Operational Technology (OT) and IT systems.
