The National Institute of Standards and Technology Interagency Report (NISITR) 7628, Guidelines for Smart Grid Cyber Security, provides an analytical framework that stakeholders can use to develop effective Smart Grid related characteristics, risks, and vulnerabilities. NISTIR 7628 spans more than 600 pages and is densely packed with technical information drawn from multiple disciplines, which to many readers is difficult to broadly conceptualize and apply. This paper explores methods for visualizing the complexities of NISTIR 7628's cyber security guidelines for the nascent Smart Grid and aiding readers to better synthesize the information presented.
