Today’s LiveWire Spotlight looks at NERC’s Event Reporting Spot Check Analysis – the third in a series of NERC reports analyzing the procedures used by audit teams to evaluate adherence to individual standards. The report assesses two audit samples from each Region to identify best practices regarding the evaluation of evidence and internal controls; and when a violation should be assessed.

NERC’s Key Reliability Standard Spot Check Report for CIP-001-2a, EOP-004-1, and EOP-004-2 was issued earlier this month. CEAs may adapt their review procedures immediately as the recommendations are not subject to approval guidelines.
