There is increased pressure on the U.S. electric power and chemical industries to protect the physical integrity of their facilities against Advanced Persistent Threats (APTs). Those threats include emerging cyber attacks, blended physical attacks, or even sabotage. In the face of added industry regulations, how do facilities meet compliance requirements?

Greg Russell, Senior Product Manager at Eid Passport®, and a seasoned expert in implementing high-security identity solutions, will discuss key NERC regulations and Risk-Based Performance Standards (RBPS) regulations that affect how critical infrastructure protects its most valuable assets. Mr. Russell will describe how implementing personnel surety program can help facilities achieve CIP-004-3 plus RBPS 7 and 12 compliance.

Some of the topics Greg will cover include: identity verification technology, risk assessment, and specific security precautions regarding screening, identification, and control of third-party visitors. Regulatory and compliance personnel working at chemical and energy facilities, and interested in more secure and reliable identification of the contractors they do business with should attend this webinar.
