KNOXVILLE, Tenn. --(Business Wire)--

CIP Compliance Bootcamp on June 19-20 in Knoxville, Tenn. geared
toward electric utility IT, security, compliance professionals and
bootcamp kicks off with an interactive course providing a NERC (News - Alert) CIP
compliance overview including cyber security solutions, audit
preparation and methods to help secure the power grid. The second day is
focused on CIP-005 and CIP-007, the two most technically oriented of the

Griffin, EnerNex Director of Energy Systems Security, stated: "This
bootcamp will provide utilities and vendors with a unique perspective of
CIP compliance. Having instructors who have worked at utilities as boots
on the ground and experience asWECC auditors gives a level of insight
and applicability taught from people who have been there. The right
instructor makes all the difference when choosing training."
EnerNex will be hosting the event in the firm's state-of-the-art Smart
Grid Lab interoperability evaluation facility at their headquarters
in Tennessee. The bootcamp is set to include Smart Grid Lab
demonstrations covering topics from both vulnerabilities and a security
architecture and technologies application point of view. Click here
