Videos to Understand NERC CIP Requirements for Smart Grid Security

Smart Grid Security East 2011 NERC CIP compliance pre-conference workshop

The North American Electric Reliability Corporation (NERC) enforces electric reliability standards under the authority of the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC). A large part of these enforcement efforts include Critical Infrastructure Protection (CIP), which is currently a key area of cyber security enforcement for NERC, and the set of guidelines are referred to as the NERC CIP guidelines. Organizations who are subject to enforcement under NERC CIP face fines of up to 1 million dollars per day for failing to comply with set requirements. This workshop will focus on the following:
  • Understanding NERC CIP Requirements
  • How to prepare for a NERC CIP Audit
  • Tips and Findings from organizations that have experienced a NERC CIP Audit
  • Overview of the direction NERC CIP is heading
