SEL helps electric utilities meet NERC CIP cybersecurity standards and streamline the ongoing process of staying in compliance.
The NERC CIP standards set critical infrastructure protection requirements for utility providers that are considered part of the bulk electrical system (BES) in the US, Canada, and part of Mexico. In addition to helping utility providers meet these standards, we can also test, design, and implement complete operational technology (OT) networking solutions and electric power protection and control solutions that comply with any cybersecurity standards that may apply to you.
SEL provides services and solutions that streamline the demanding, potentially time-consuming tasks of maintaining compliance with NERC CIP cybersecurity standards and keeping your critical electric power infrastructure secure.
And if NERC CIP standards don’t yet apply to you, but might in the future, we can help ensure that future compliance is easier to achieve.
SEL provides the design, setup, and implementation of secure engineering access using the SEL Real-time Automation Controller (RTAC), SEL Unified Threat Management (UTM) Firewall, and SEL-3620 Ethernet Security Gateway with centralized RBAC services.
As part of this service, SEL experts will:
We provide centralized enterprise management integration for SEL secure networking and access control solutions, including plans for restoring settings and systems in case of a catastrophic cyber event.
