Nations run on the utility infrastructure that supplies businesses, organizations and families in North America.  The North American Electric Reliability Corporation (NERC) is a not-for-profit international regulatory authority whose mission is to assure the effective and efficient reduction of risks to the reliability and security of the grid.  NERC develops and enforces Reliability Standards; annually assesses seasonal and long‐term reliability; monitors the bulk power system through system awareness; and educates, trains, and certifies industry personnel.

NERC’s area of responsibility spans the continental United States, Canada, and the northern portion of Baja California, Mexico. NERC is the electric reliability organization (ERO) for North America, subject to oversight by the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) and governmental authorities in Canada. NERC\’s jurisdiction includes users, owners, and operators of the bulk power system, which serves more than 334 million people.

NERC Critical Infrastructure Protection standards are increasingly prescriptive and, while meant to insure consistent reliable energy delivery, demand a great deal from utility providers. The Critical Infrastructure Protection (CIP) Committee was formed to help NERC advance the physical security and cyber security of the critical electricity infrastructure of North America.  Currently  a partial listing of CIP Standards issued by NERC and in effect are:

  • CIP-002.5-1a Cyber Security Critical Cyber-Asset Identification
  • CIP-003-6 Cyber Security Security Management Controls
  • CIP-004-6 Cyber Security Personnel and Training
  • CIP-005-5 Cyber Security Electronic Security Perimeter
  • CIP-006-6 Cyber Security Physical Security of Critical Cyber-Assets
  • CIP-007-6 Cyber Security Systems Security and Management
  • CIP-008-5 Cyber Security Incident Reporting and Response Planning`
  • CIP-009-6 Cyber Security Recovery Plans for Critical Cyber-Assets
  • CIP-014-2 Physical Security

 PRODAR installed systems will enable utility providers to accelerate compliance with NERC Standards, meet the ever increasing standards for operational performance in the standards and document compliance with the standards to insure an optimal outcome to NERC facility security audits. 

PRODAR\’s integrated compliance automation software and custom designed data prioritization systems projected through graphical user interface displays will enhance any utility providers security program.  Call for a peer review audit by PRODAR.
