See which NERC CIP compliance requirements you can address with Netwrix Auditor
The North American Electric Reliability Corporation (NERC) is a trans-national regulatory authority that ensures the reliability of the bulk electric power system in North America by developing and enforcing NERC reliability compliance standards for planning and operating the bulk electric system and minimizing the risk of system disturbances. NERC standards, which are designed to ensure the security of the IT infrastructure that supports North America's bulk electric system, are called NERC Critical Infrastructure Protection (CIP) standards.
