Deloitte, Exelon, the country’s leading competitive energy provider, are teaming up to better protect “the reliability of the Bulk Electric System with the implementation of the North American Reliability Corporation (NERC) Critical Infrastructure Protection (CIP) Version 5 standards.”
According to Ed Powers, principal, Deloitte & Touche LLP, “Exelon’s leadership in critical infrastructure protection is helping to improve the cybersecurity and reliability of its electric system. While regulatory requirements are an important factor, business leaders should assess their risk environment to create a robust cyber risk program that goes beyond compliance. Exelon is doing just that with demonstrated collaboration among their executives, generation, utility and IT professionals driving innovation, and expanding their NERC CIP compliance activities to something that could generate business value.”
