The “Guide Book” also provides enhanced information such as potential auditors’ questions, evidence of compliance, and even best practices or common problem areas.
The “Guide Book” was developed using Version 3 of the CIP Standards, as well as guidance for CIP-002 Version 4 as currently approved by the NERC Board of Trustees, and is presented in a easy-to-use “lay flat,” full color, tabbed handbook format.
Michael W. Tibbs, Senior Vice-President and Chief Operating Officer of CRSI, explains, “The NERC CIP Compliance Guide Book benefits all members of the utility company. Those that will benefit most from the Guide are Subject Matter Experts, members of the Internal Compliance Team, Management and Senior Executives, and literally any employees dealing directly with NERC CIP on a daily or periodic basis.”
The first edition of the “Guide Book” will only be available for purchase by CRSI’s utility partners and will be available in early/mid-March 2012. CRSI has plans to distribute future version of the “Guide Book” in a web-based resource process with a subscription service keeping the information current on changes in the NERC CIP regulatory environment.
