Transmission Substations

Physical Security Webinar on April 14th

Remember, no CEO wants to be in the position of explaining after the fact why CIP-014-like controls were not considered and/or implemented for important utility assets that were the subject of a hostile attack.

Security of the electric grid in North America is paramount today. One significant aspect of protecting the grid is the physical security of transmission substations. The FERC approved NERC Standard CIP-014 makes physical protections mandatory for transmission substations meeting the applicability of CIP-014. However, the threat to assets does not stop at the CIP-014 threshold. Electric Utilities have a responsibility to their shareholders, customers and employees to provide reasonable protection for utility assets, many of which are beyond the CIP-006 and even CIP-014 footprint.

Join CRSI for a webinar on April 14th at 2:00 PM EST to discuss protections and how they can be cost effectively implemented to dramatically improve the physical security posture of transmission substations. This webinar is intended for members of registered utilities. Register today for the April 14th webinar.

Remember, no CEO wants to be in the position of explaining after the fact why CIP-014-like controls were not considered and/or implemented for important utility assets that were the subject of a hostile attack.
