Last month, GridSME’s Andrew Dressel was featured in Hydro Review’s July 2014 issue. His article, “NERC CIP Version 5: Impact to Hydro Owners and Operators,” focuses on the background of CIP standards, the upcoming CIP Version 5 transition, and areas of concern regarding its implementation in the hydroelectric realm. Amongst these concerns, he highlights high watermarking as well as configuration change management and vulnerability assessments. He advises those who haven’t begun preparation for the April 1, 2016 implementation date to start immediately and provides a list of resources that should be considered by anyone looking to stay compliant.
