Thursday, February 12, 2015

PRINCETON, N.J.—The new mandatory physical security requirements for protecting the nation’s electric grid are explained in a new whitepaper, published in January by smart thermal camera provider SightLogix. 

 The NERC CIP-014 reliability standard was developed by the North American Energy Reliability Corporation. 

“The need for reliable intrusion detection systems to protect electrical assets has never been higher,” said John Romanowich, CEO, SightLogix. “The concepts outlined in the NERC standards represent a sound and effective security practice for detecting and responding to breaches quickly, and smart thermal technology is ideally suited to meet the real-time awareness NERC requires for protecting the nation’s power grid.”
