Day 1 – NERC CIP Version 5 Foundations Course

For many, CIP Version 3 has become rote knowledge – the terms, requirements and approaches are well engrained into their day-to-day activities. CIP Version 5 is a dramatic change that is likely to challenge even the most seasoned CIP compliance professional.

This course is perfect for both seasoned NERC CIP professionals seeking to ensure a smooth transition to version 5, as well as those new to NERC CIP who wish to jump start the learning process on these important standards.

Attendees will come away from this one-day course prepared to face version 5. In this course we will:

  • Explain the 19 terms with new or revised definitions and other important terms that are still undefined
  • Describe the 13 categories of assets to which requirements apply
  • Explain the new bright line criteria and the three tier (High/Medium/Low) approach to asset classification
  • Walk through a detailed mapping and discussion of the new, revised, and retired requirements
  • Discuss the two new standards in version 5
  • Explore future changes that may result from the FERC Order on version 5
  • Provide references and discussion on the pertinent NERC filings and FERC rulings on these standards
