Security Working Group

Security Working Group (Previously CIP Working Group - CIPWG)

The purpose of the Security Working Group is to advance the physical and cybersecurity of the electricity infrastructure within the SPP footprint. This group will serve as a forum for discussing security issues, for establishing security policies and procedures, sharing best practices for SPP member-common resources, and will serve as an interface between the NERC Critical Infrastructure Protection Committee (CIPC) and the SPP membership.
