Save the Date for Joint NERC, FERC Physical Security Technical Conference

ATLANTA – NERC and the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) will host a joint Physical Security Technical Conference on August 10 at NERC’s Atlanta office. The staff-led technical conference is in response to a recommendation in NERCs Evaluation of the Physical Security Reliability Standard and Physical Security Attacks to the Bulk Power System that was filed with FERC in April. The report evaluates CIP-014-3, NERC’s physical security standard, and recent physical security attacks on the bulk power system. The all-day technical conference will solicit input on the type of substation configurations that should be studied to determine whether additional substations should be included in the standards applicability criteria. The technical conference also seeks to establish data needs for conducting those studies.

​Additional details and agenda to follow.​
