If you are involved with NERC CIP Compliance, you know the frustration of trying to remember every single requirement, sub-requirement, document, reference, process, and procedure. In response to this frustration heard from clients, Corporate Risk Solutions, Inc. (CRSI) has developed a collective location for all information you need to better maximize the efficiency of your compliance team.
In February, CRSI formally announced the launch of the fully-abridged NERC CIP Compliance Guide, complete with narration of each CIP Requirement and supporting information to assist with Requirement comprehension and compliance. The Guide provides detailed information as to what documentation is needed per Requirement and Sub-Requirement and details additional evidence that must be provided during an audit to achieve compliance. Finally, the Guide provides best practice recommendations and problem areas to avoid.
In its first production run alone, CRSI sold 127 Guides to utilities across all eight NERC Regions. So far, CRSI’s clients have been providing them with great feedback about the functionality and features of the Compliance Guide. Instead of spending hours upon hours trying to find a reference or even being aware the reference exists, see for yourself how you can save an abundance of time and money in your NERC CIP Compliance Program.
“I strongly recommend CRSI’s NERC CIP Compliance Guide to peers responsible for compliance with the CIP standards. It is exceptionally well done and can be used as a reference to validate various aspects of a current CIP compliance program or as a problem solving tool to work through CIP compliance issue,” commented Robert Hoopes, Senior Director of FERC/NERC Compliance, PPL Corporation. “Its use in preparing for a CIP audit will be a great benefit to those organizations using it.”
