NERC has just announced the sign-in sites for their one-day Cyber Security Supply Chain Management workshop in Atlanta (at the Grand Hyatt Atlanta, near NERC’s headquarters in Buckhead) on Thursday, November 10. Registration for the on-site meeting is here. Registration for the webinar is here. There is no charge for the workshop.
This will be your only chance for face-to-face (or “browser-to-browser”) interaction with the Standards Drafting Team developing the supply chain standard. My guess is the workshop will fill up soon, so you should probably sign up soon if you want to attend, either in-person or virtually (note: I signed up before I uploaded this post! My mother didn’t raise a stupid child).
Here is an excerpt from the email the SDT sent to the Plus List today: “The purpose of the technical conference is to facilitate early stakeholder engagement in the development of standards requirements addressing the Commission’s directives. The Standards Drafting Team (SDT) has developed the Standards Authorization Request (SAR) describing the project scope, which is posted on the project page for stakeholder comment. Additionally the SDT has begun developing proposed requirements and is seeking stakeholder feedback during technical conference discussions. The timing of the technical conference supports providing the SDT with valuable input for their use in developing a draft standard that is ready for subsequent formal commenting and balloting in early 2017.”
