The North American Electric Reliability Corporation (NERC) is a not-for-profit international regulatory authority whose mission is to assure the reliability of the bulk power system (BPS) in North America. NERC develops and enforces mandatory standards that define requirements for reliable planning and operation of the bulk power system.
NERC’s Critical Infrastructure Protection (CIP) Reliability Standards, represent a comprehensive, risk-based approach to further enhance the security of the North American bulk power system by providing a physical and cyber-security framework for the identification and protection of Critical Cyber Assets that control or affect the reliability of North America’s bulk power systems.
RSI Security is a full service cyber security assessor and advisory company helping entities meet security compliance needs. RSI Security has the experience, skills and resources to help your organization identify and protect critical cyber assets by helping you meet NERC CIP compliance requirements.
In 2006, the U.S. Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) made the CIP Cyber Security Standards mandatory for all registered entities identified by NERC, and enforceable across all users, owners, and operators of the bulk power system in the United States.
