Why You Should Attend

The 2014 Forum on Utility Reliability Compliance

The 2014 Forum on Utility Reliability Compliance will address major issues such as CIP standards demonstrating the difficulties of legislating reliability and security, culture of compliance, audit preparation, transparency between regional entities, and federal legislative and regulatory concerns.

With regulations changing and being processed through FERC and NERC, itís imperative to understand the implications of being a NERC registered entity and the complicated, costly process of compliance. Companies continue to wrestle with the complexities of the NERC reliability standards implementation, compliance, and enforcement processes.

Through case study presentations, Heads of NERC Compliance, CIP Compliance and Regulatory Compliance from leading utility companies will focus on all of the NERC standards and requirements that utilities face daily and how to cement a proper compliance program in place throughout their organizations.

Key Topics

  • Address proper tools that help improve the implementation process
  • Strengthen knowledge on cyber security regulations and where they are leading the industry
  • Establish a controlled way to implement changes while managing current and upcoming NERC-CIP requirements
  • Verify the force of reliability standards in the BES definition
