  PE-11: Emergency Power  

base control objective:
The organization provides a short-term uninterruptible power supply to facilitate an orderly shutdown of the information system in the event of a primary power source loss.

supplemental objective information:
This control, to include any enhancements specified, may be satisfied by similar requirements fulfilled by another organizational entity other than the information security program. Organizations should avoid duplicating actions already covered.

enhancements to the base objective:

(1) The organization provides a long-term alternate power supply for the information system that is capable of maintaining minimally required operational capability in the event of an extended loss of the primary power source.

(2) The organization provides a long-term alternate power supply for the information system that is self-contained and not reliant on external power generation.
Enhancement Supplemental Guidance: Long-term alternate power supplies for the information system are either manually or automatically activated.

mapping to FIPS199 baseline:

  LOW: null     MOD: base     HIGH: base (1)  

related (regimented) controls:

None.
