CIP v5 Cyber Security Awareness Training

CIP v5 Cyber Security Awareness Training

Electric utility providers have employees and contractors who have authorized cyber or unescorted physical access to BES Cyber Systems. Given the critical role they play in our society, electric utilities are subject to federally mandated North American Electric Reliability Corporation (NERC) reliability standards and are required to comply with its training requirements or face potentially significant financial penalties. The SANS CIP Version 5 computer-based cyber security training program was developed to address the requirements of NERC CIP-004-5.1 R1 and NERC CIP-004-5.1 R2. Training includes 13 modules averaging 5 minutes in length. Click here to learn more.
