The Latest on Grid Security, and NERC Reliability Standards and Compliance Issues
The workshops scheduled in Phoenix, AZ, Charlotte, NC, and Kansas City, MO, have been cancelled.
Attendees will receive updates on NERC reliability standards and compliance and enforcement activities/initiatives. This includes Critical Infrastructure Protection (CIP, cyber and physical), Geomagnetic Disturbance (GMD, solar storm), and other important standards. Additionally, attendees will hear the latest lessons learned on NERC’s Risk-Based Registration (RBR) and Risk-Based Compliance and Enforcement (RBCE) initiatives. Finally, other non-NERC standard critical reliability and security issues will be examined, including high-voltage spare transformers, substation security best practices, the NERC-operated Electricity Information, Sharing and Analysis Center (E-ISAC), data breach protection, relevant federal legislation and how to be more involved in NRECA and NERC activities.
