PE — PHYSICAL AND ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION
PE-9: POWER EQUIPMENT AND CABLING
NIST 800-53R4 Membership PE-9:
The organization protects power equipment and power cabling for the information system from damage and destruction.
Organizations determine the types of protection necessary for power equipment and cabling employed at different locations both internal and external to organizational facilities and environments of operation. This includes, for example, generators and power cabling outside of buildings, internal cabling and uninterruptable power sources within an office or data center, and power sources for self-contained entities such as vehicles and satellites.
RELATED CONTROLS: PE-9
PE-9 (1) POWER EQUIPMENT AND CABLING | REDUNDANT CABLING
The organization employs redundant power cabling paths that are physically separated by [Assignment: organization-defined distance].
Physically separate, redundant power cables help to ensure that power continues to flow in the event one of the cables is cut or otherwise damaged.
PE-9 (2) POWER EQUIPMENT AND CABLING | AUTOMATIC VOLTAGE CONTROLS
The organization employs automatic voltage controls for [Assignment: organization-defined critical information system components].
