​NRECA and the Edison Electric Institute (EEI) filed joint comments with the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) in response to its Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (NOPR) on Cyber Security Incident Reporting Reliability Standards. NRECA and EEI agree with and support FERC in declining to propose additional Reliability Standard modifications to address malware detection, mitigation and removal because malware is already addressed by existing efforts. But NRECA and EEI do not support FERC's Cyber Security Incident reporting modifications as proposed in the NOPR. NRECA and EEI recommend that FERC consider holding a technical conference to gather more information before taking further action. FULL COMMENTS
