NERC maintains cyber security standards for protecting critical infrastructure.

The Challenges for security and compliance to regulatory requirements are unprecedented in our post-9/11 world.

Utility industry leaders have reported that NERC compliance requirements have created disruptions in workflow for their employees, linemen, and engineers, who may be performing security duties, monitoring personnel, subcontractors, and anyone who is not approved for “un-escorted access” to the utility site. This situation is costly to the industry.

Port Security Services can provide the security personnel that you need, reducing your costs and improving efficiency. Our expert NERC/CIP trained security officers can help you secure any location at your utility substation, and other areas of your facility or construction site. Reducing costs and freeing your employees and contractors from the security workload necessary to maintain NERC compliance.
