No matter what stage you are at, we can help you with Reliability, Security, and Compliance.

Helping Our Clients Achieve Success Since 2003

We are a nationally recognized, employee-owned and operated consulting firm that, since 2003, serves electric utility market participants with cyber security services focused on NERC CIP, and has been since the UA 1200 Reliability Standards. We also successfully provide educational, financial, hospitality, and manufacturing institutions with control system and communication network reliability, and cyber security consulting services.

While most widely known for providing the electric utility industry with NERC CIP compliance consulting services such as NERC CIP Mock Audits, Compliance Assessments, Cyber Vulnerability Assessments, Regional Entity Audit Support, and most recently NERC CIP Version 6 Gap Analyses and transition guidance, we are equally adept in a wide array of Information Security, Network Reliability, and Network Security consulting services. These include services such as white-box and black-box penetration testing, social engineering, Security Awareness Training for software developers, plus, substation network design, Distribution Management System security architecture, network sniffing, and much more.

We do NERC CIP and so much more!
