The North American Electric Reliability Corporation (NERC) is a federally designated nonprofit corporation chartered to ensure the bulk electric system in North America is reliable, adequate and secure. To meet that goal, NERC enforces comprehensive reliability standards for planning and operating the collective bulk power system, including the Critical Infrastructure Protection (CIP) Cyber Security Standards. These NERC-CIP standards protect Critical Cyber Assets (CCA)-the computers, servers, networks and devices and other elements of the IT infrastructure that affect the reliability of or control North America's bulk electricity systems. IT organizations in every sector of the North American energy industry face routine pressure to comply with the requirements of these standards, but must do so with limited staff and decreasing budgets.
