Webinar: The Top Issues with CIP-002-5.1 and What You Can Do About Them

I’m pleased to announce that I will join Steve Parker and Karl Perman of EnergySec for two webinars discussing interpretation issues with CIP version 5 and what NERC entities can do about them – given that the compliance date remains April 1, 2016.   

The first webinar, on May 20 at 10 to 11 AM Pacific Time, will discuss issues with CIP-002-5.1.  You can sign up for it here.  The second webinar, on June 18 at 10-11 PT, will discuss issues with the other CIP v5 and v6 standards.  You can sign up for that webinar here.   

Note that both webinars will be recorded.  So even if you can’t make one or both, go ahead and sign up so you’ll receive the link to the recording when it’s available. 

Here’s the story:

NERC entities have many questions regarding interpretation of the requirements and definitions of NERC CIP Version 5.  NERC has provided some guidance on some of these questions, but in very few cases can that guidance be said to be definitive. For the remaining issues, NERC entities need to research whatever guidance is available, but in the end it is up to each entity to determine and document how it will address each issue.  

To help you understand some of the major issues in CIP Version 5 and the ways they can be addressed, EnergySec is pleased to present two webinars, on May 20 and June 18.  In each webinar, three well-known specialists on CIP Version 5, Steve Parker and Karl Perman of EnergySec and Tom Alrich of Deloitte & Touche LLP, will identify certain major issues with CIP v5 and provide recommendations on how NERC entities can address each one.
