Ensuring reliability of the Bulk Electric System (BES) is mission critical for today’s regulated electric, nuclear and other power entities. Failure to meet key federal (NERC/FERC) and regional regulations can mean significant financial and even criminal penalties. In some cases, fines can reach $1 million per day. Companies must organize, track and coordinate a gauntlet of corporate and compliance challenges including internal controls and risk management, evidence collection and assessment, asset and change management, incident reporting and mitigation, and ensuring cyber security system-wide.
AssurX provides an end-to-end, automated NERC compliance software solution that expands seamlessly to address all industry regulations. One enterprise-wide, flexible system consistently manages operations, identifies risks, and demonstrates compliance across all critical operations.
