I’m pleased to report that EnergySec has just introduced an excellent newsletter on NERC CIP. To be published two to three times a month, it looks like it’s aimed to keep the reader apprised of all the important developments in CIP – not just limited to the CIP standards per se, but including the whole “CIP environment”. For example, the introductory newsletter includes insightful commentary by Steve Parker (EnergySec’s president), notes and links on FERC developments, links to upcoming meetings and webinars (as well as past webinar recordings), links and discussion of recent CIP Notices of Penalty, and discussion on current Lessons Learned.
You can receive the newsletter for free if you work for an EnergySec member organization (and if you don’t, maybe you should talk to someone about joining). You can get a free 30-day trial here (the trial is for both of their newsletters: the weekly one on cyber security developments of interest to the industry, as well as the new CIP newsletter).
