CIP 14-2 Physical Security

Innovation comes to the preparation of the several documents needed for the Physical Security of BES Cyber Systems. This course shows how to read the standard in an algorithmic, color-coded method to produce all the attributes that auditors ask for by name:

  • A Physical Security Plan
  • Risk Assessments for Transmission Stations/Substations
  • Third-Party Verifications of Risk Assessments
  • Evaluations of Potential Threats & Vulnerabilities and more Labs show participants the practice of perfectly organizing documents for CIP-014-2 in an auditable manner that minimizes the NERC Regional Audit challenge. Breakout sessions allow sharing lessons learned.

Michael has managed multiple large IT implementation projects and has worked with over 100 clients in the delivery of methodology-based solutions with the assistance of software. Such projects involved network security solutions, technical documentation, process and controls solutions, as well as Sarbanes-Oxley, and NERC Compliance audit preparations for such prestigious companies as Price Waterhouse Coopers, Deloitte & Touche, Enterprise Controls Consulting, and Ernst & Young.

His career demonstrates a specialty in building team synergy in uncommonly difficult situations. Michael has been extremely successful in helping NERC Entities and Auditors, along with IT organizations, and private and government-regulated entities to avoid millions of dollars in penalties in the face of perplexing regulatory language and limited time constraints. His work demonstrates a higher level of thinking which seeks to map a corporate mission with existing activities, before engagement in activity and controls monitoring.
