This course provides conceptual understanding of technical topics relevant to the CIP standards. Course topics will be presented at a conceptual level, with deeper technical dives and specific details being used to support conceptual understanding.

This course will provide an understanding of security control frameworks and the application of internal controls in NERC CIP environments. It will cover the NIST SP800 series controls, NIST CSF, ES-C2M2, and related mappings to the standards. NERC and regional approaches will be reviewed and the controls required by or useful for compliance with the CIP standards will extensively discussed.
