CIP Compliance - Updates, Enforcement and Practical Implementation

This webinar event originally broadcast live on April 25, 2019.


In this webinar we will discuss the topic of NERC CIP compliance, what it means for utilities of all sizes and recent events from an enforcement standpoint that highlight where most organizations should be focusing their compliance efforts, and where some recent violations have missed the mark. We will also provide a preview of changes coming such as NERC CIP 013 for Supply Chain Risk Management that will affect everyone responsible for NERC CIP compliance. Lastly, these programs are very complex to build, run and coordinate with auditor pressure. We will cover approaches to operationalize the standards in a practical way and utilize data-driven methods to contextualize assets to vendors to improve power reliability, reduce the risk of life safety related events and achieve NERC CIP compliance at the same time.

  • CIOs, Plant Managers, IT, Operations & Supply Chain managers from:
  • Utility and Independent Power Producers
  • Project Developers
  • Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM)
  • Refineries & Petrochemical plants
