This course is designed specifically for individuals affiliated with organizations that provide products and services to electric utilities that are subject to the NERC CIP standards. 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.

Section 1 – CIP Foundations

This section will provide the foundational knowledge you need to understand the CIP landscape, and be conversant on NERC CIP topics.

Section 2 – CIP Requirements

This section will provide an overview of the requirements of standards CIP-002-6 through CIP-0011-2, explaining the various activities that utilities must conduct to ensure compliance. Note that this section provides an overview of requirements from a vendor perspective. For an in-depth examination of the requirements, including compliance approaches and evidentiary expectations, we suggest attending Day 2 and 3 of our CIP Bootcamp.

Section 3 – CIP and Your Organization

In this section we will explain how the CIP standards impact the market for products and services in the electric sector. We will identify the features and functions your customers need to effectively comply with the standards, and requirements that apply to your products, services, and personnel.

Workshop: EnergySec CIP Compatibility Report
