CIP Low Impact Policies and Plans Developed by Proven Compliance Solutions Inc. Recognized as Best Practices

Proven Compliance Solutions Inc. (PCS) is pleased to announce the recognition of Best Practices for its development of policies, plans and procedures for the NERC Critical Infrastructure Protection (CIP) Reliability Standards CIP-002 Cyber Security - BES Cyber System Categorization and CIP-003 Cyber Security - Security Management Controls.

PCS has developed comprehensive, easy to follow, manageable CIP low impact policies, plans and procedures for its clients that allow site personnel to follow the Requirements and applicable attachments of CIP-002 and CIP-003.  The documents are written so that responsible personnel clearly understand their roles, can easily implement the program, and are able to produce the necessary evidence to prove compliance with the Standards.

During a client’s recent compliance monitoring event, CIP-002 and CIP-003 were in scope.  Following their review, the Regional Entity’s validation letter indicated it found no evidence of non-compliance for the Standards and Requirements, and included in its letter a statement that “… [Entity]’s program demonstrated one of the Best Practices in the region.”  PCS also received recognition from the client who indicated, “Excellent work by PCS on the CIP-002 and CIP-003 procedures and guidance… No violations!  The results speak for themselves.  Thanks again for your high quality of work.”

PCS has written CIP impact assessments and low impact policies and plans for multiple clients and has assisted with their implementation, as well as writing and leading Cyber Security Incident Response table top exercises, and creating awareness materials for dissemination throughout the client’s organization, all with successful outcomes.  Pleasing its clients and providing expert quality work is one of PCS’ highest goals.

In addition to the CIP low impact programs, PCS has also developed medium and high impact programs for its clients.  CIP Reliability Standards compliance is a main focus of the PCS team, along with the Operations and Planning (O&P) Standards.  PCS staff is committed to the success of its clients’ programs and providing guidance, information, and exceptional NERC consulting services that will foster that success.  If you would like to receive more information on how PCS can assist you with your Reliability Standards compliance needs, please contact Dale Zahn at (262) 436-4116 or by email at This email address is being protected from spambots.
