NERC – North American Electric Reliability Council

The Energy Policy Act of 2005 authorized the creation of a self-regulatory electric reliability organization (ERO) that spans North America, with Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) oversight in the United States. The legislation makes compliance with North American Electric Reliability Council (NERC) and regional reliability standards mandatory and enforceable; presently compliance is voluntary in the United States. Our company has help client’s do NERC vulnerability assessments and complete required Cyber Security Plans.
