Benefits of SANS CIP Training:
Confidence in the content
Be confident the material is best in class and updated based on the latest NERC discussions. We know the standards change. CIP v5 went to v6 before it even became enforceable. SANS CIP training team members account for all the version changes in CIP computer-based and in-person training.
Peace of mind
Your CIP compliance efforts need to be right the first time because second chances can have big consequences. Using computer-based and in-person CIP training built by industry and regulatory experts is an easy win on the journey to compliance.
Clarity amidst confusion
SANS CIP experts strive to find the clarity you need to make sense of the standards and be ready for your audit. The SANS CIP team focuses on topic areas that can be confusing for compliance teams. Since the early days of CIP, the SANS CIP team works with regulators and monitors the activity of standards development teams, NERC CIPC, and regional CIP committees and user groups to stay on top of the latest developments.
That insight translates into clear answers to difficult questions. For instance, how should you classify assets and document them accurately? What is the best approach in developing a training program?
Better use of your resources
Even your best resources struggle to keep up with the pace of change in NERC regulations. This is proving to be one of the toughest parts of the new CIP regulations. SANS is committed to helping the entire ecosystem determine the best path forward. We get into the weeds to make your path easier.
