In this interactive, two-day workshop we will provide you with the foundational knowledge and industry insights you need to effectively develop, sell, and support products and services used in NERC CIP environments. You will obtain an understanding of the NERC CIP regulatory environment, commonly used terminology, requirements, and most importantly, how CIP impacts the sales and support of your organization’s products and services.
