GIAC Critical Infrastructure Protection (GCIP)

GCIP

"The bulk electric system or "the grid" is arguably the most critical of the critical infrastructures demanding that personnel charged with supporting it, understand the impact of their actions and inactions with regard to system reliability, safety and security. The GIAC Critical Infrastructure Protection will help validate that the professionals who access, support and maintain the critical systems that keep the grid running have an understanding of the regulatory requirements of NERC CIP as well as practical implementation strategies to achieve both regulatory compliance and its cyber security objectives." -Ted Gutierrez, co-author of SANS ICS456: Essentials for NERC Critical Infrastructure Protection.
