The North American Electric Reliability Corporation (NERC) regulates bulk-power system users, owners, and operators and developed the Critical Infrastructure Protection (CIP) Cyber Security Standards to ensure the reliability and security of the bulk-power system in North America.
Specifically, the NERC Standards CIP-002 through CIP-009 provides a change control and asset management framework for the identification and protection of critical Cyber Assets. ChangeGear has a unique architecture that is suited to meet the growing needs of energy companies in the areas of service desk, change control, and configuration management.
“Here at SunView Software, we work with many power companies to help them automate and simplify their NERC CIP compliance,” said John Prestridge, Vice President Marketing and Products of SunView Software. “If you must comply with these regulations, ChangeGear is a great solution to help establish strong change control processes to protect your critical cyber assets – a cornerstone for any security and compliance initiative.”
