A panel of experts from EnergySec and SigmaFlow will provide an explanation of the importance of documenting processes and maintaining evidence of compliance for NERC CIP Version 5. Registered entities will be required to demonstrate compliance with the requirements of NERC CIP Version 5. The difficulties associated with manual compliance processes lend to the exploration of automated solutions. As such, the panelists will explore the merits of a comprehensive pre-configured solution for NERC CIP Version 5 compliance over point solutions, homegrown solutions, or general use tools.
The panel discussion will be supplemented with a live demonstration of the SigmaFlow NERC CIP Compliance Solution. With SigmaFlow Compliance Manager, utilities have a preconfigured, end-to-end solution that lets them focus on running their businesses rather than on building a compliance system. Process driven controls facilitate compliance for the new CIP Version 5 assessment criteria, cyber asset change management, identity access management, and cyber asset baseline management. Time will be allocated for questions and answers.
Please join EnergySec and SigmFlow for this interactive discussion and demonstration to learn more about NERC CIP Version 5, evidence of compliance and the SigmaFlow CIP Compliance Solution.
For many electric utility organizations managing NERC CIP requirements is a constant struggle. With the latest version of NERC CIP set to be enforceable in April 2016 it is imperative organizations begin preparing now to comply with updated requirements. Preparing to tackle CIP-010, Change Management and Vulnerability, is better done sooner rather than later in part due to the sheer amount of information that needs to be collected and reported on.
