Securing the Grid: NERC Compliance Solutions

As the electric grid becomes increasingly digital, the need for robust cybersecurity protocols is more important than ever. The North American Electric Reliability Corporation (NERC) Critical Infrastructure Protection (CIP) compliance standards were established to maintain the reliability and security of the bulk power system. Utilities are required to have CIP compliance programs in place that address all NERC CIP standards. Non-compliance may put the grid at risk and have significant impacts on companies through monetary fines, penalties, and reputational harm. By taking a proactive approach to NERC CIP and cybersecurity, utilities can not only meet their compliance obligations but also strengthen the overall operational technology security posture.
