NERC CIP Compliance

The NERC CIP standards are especially challenging. Technical and procedural requirements must be executed across an increasing number of in-scope devices and personnel. One mistake in executing these high frequency compliance processes leaves registered entities at risk of non-compliance, security breaches, or operational failures.

Utilicast excels at designing, implementing, and improving CIP compliance processes. Our methodology treats CIP compliance as the floor of a sustainable security program. We bring consultants to bear with electric industry and cybersecurity experience, who are equally at home in Control Centers, Generating Plants, and Substations.

Our Service Offerings include:

  • CIP v5/v6 transition
  • Process capability assessments
  • Proactive improvement and optimization
  • Project management
  • Mitigation plans
