Cybersecurity and physical security continue to grow in importance in successful NERC compliance programs

FORT WORTH, Texas (PRWEB) September 25, 2018 — Certrec, a leading regulatory compliance provider for NERC compliance, will participate as a sponsor in the 2018 GridSecCon (Grid Security Conference) in Las Vegas. NERC’s Electricity Information Sharing and Analysis Center (E-ISAC) and the Western Electricity Coordinating Council are hosting the eighth annual GridSecCon, which will be held from October 15-19. The conference will include cybersecurity and physical security experts from the industry and the government to share emerging security trends, policy advancements, and lessons learned related to the electricity industry.
