“Certrec’s NERC compliance workshop presented focused guidance on NERC standards as well as upcoming changes as they relate to our facilities. This streamlines our NERC compliance efforts. The opportunity to network with industry peers was also beneficial,” Certrec client. 

The workshop provided an update on CIP as well as facility ratings guidance as they pertain to GO/GOP registered entities. Three regional representatives presented their regulatory perspectives on the latest relevant standards, the risk-based approach to compliance, and standards development. Guest presenters discussed cyber security, GMD, and human performance. Certrec’s NERC team provided guidance on best practices. 

“We are very pleased at the growth in our conference as we strive to provide more relevant and current compliance information to our clients,” stated Ted Enos, Certrec CEO.
