NST has over twenty(and counting) CIP-013 Supply Chain plans that have our name written in the version history box next to Version 1.0.
Walking the floor at CIPC
NST contributed to dozens of working groups at NERC CIPC and each of the Regions. Our pen's ink is on that paper. Plus, NST continues to ballot on behalf of clients as new Standards are developed .
Sitting at the audit table
NST has been involved in hundreds of Regional, NERC, and FERC Audits both as auditors and as SMEs, and way more than that if we’re counting Mock Audits and Gap Assessments we’ve led.
Crawling around BES Facilities
NST has visited thousands of substations, power plants, and control centers to collect inventories, walk down PSPs, validate network diagrams, and more.
Performing countless VAs
NST has analyzed hundreds of thousands of Bulk Electric System Cyber Assets. At this point, we know the CIP-010 Guidelines and Technical Basis like the back of our hand. Paper and Active. Medium and High impact.
Reading, redlining, and rewriting documentation
NST has read, edited, and created more NERC CIP program policies, processes, and procedures than we can count!
we love NERC CIP
We love the Bulk Electric System. We love cyber security. And yes, we love NERC CIP.
