Today’s LiveWire Spotlight evaluates feedback given to NERC’s Board of Trustees (BOT) Policy prior to their November meeting from the Member Representatives Committee (MRC), industry trade organizations, the ISO/RTO Council, and Regional Entities.  Two policy topics were on the table:

  1. An iterative six-step risk management framework devised by two senior-level NERC committees to identify and prioritize the most pressing threats to the BPS.
  2. The most important reliability and security matters that NERC and the Regional Entities should focus their attention on over the next three years.

NERC’s BOT heard the policy feedback at its November meeting via teleconference due to COVID-19.  The six-step risk management framework was approved, with a promise that solutions would be pursued to deal with the concerns flagged in the policy input.
