All attendees will receive full printed and electronic copies of the course materials, plus free access to future versions of the course for a period of 12 months and access to the course alumni email discussion forums. Course materials are regularly reviewed and updated to reflect the latest NERC guidance, formal interpretations, FERC rulings, regional audit approaches, and other relevant items.
Day 1 - NERC CIP Foundations and Low Impact Requirements
Day 1 of the NERC CIP Bootcamp provides foundational and background information on the standards with a focus on the low impact requirements and related compliance responsibilities for entities with only low impact assets. The course materials are nearly identical to those used for the 1-day stand-alone low impact course, when offered.
Day 2 and 3 - NERC CIP Deep Dive - Medium and High Impact Requirements
Days 2 and 3 of the NERC CIP Bootcamp provide a comprehensive look at the latest versions of standards CIP-002 through CIP-011. Each requirement will be discussed in detail along with a summary of evidence required to demonstrate compliance.
NERC CIP Audit Workshop
Compliance with the NERC CIP standards is only half the battle. Once compliance programs are in place, it is necessary to collect documentation and evidence of that compliance, and prepare to provide such evidence to auditors. EnergySec’s team of experts has developed a 2-day workshop that prepares entity personnel to successfully navigate the audit process from preparation, to execution, to post-audit negotiations. Attendees will obtain an understanding of the NERC Rules of Procedures (RoP), Compliance Monitoring and Enforcement Program (CMEP), Inherent Risk Assessments (IRA), Internal Controls Evaluation (ICE), and the audit process as documented in the ERO Auditors Handbook. The class, taught by a team of former regional entity auditors, will feature live exercises that build participant skills, and provide experience in a simulated audit environment.
