Energy Operating Environment The Energy industry can encompass electric, gas, solar, nuclear, wind and even dam/reservoirs. Some of the requirements can also be extended to oil and gas production. Companies operating in the Energy industry must cope with heavy risks – in operations, safety (worker and public), and security. In particular – public safety is of paramount concern in the protection of critical infrastructure. Both insider and outsider threats must be considered. Where there is a heavy reliance on contractors and vendors (i.e., less known or trusted identities) to support the massive production and distribution systems, personnel and physical security processes become extremely important. Regulations National Electric Reliability Council (NERC) Critical Infastructure Protection (CIP) Use Cases Manage contractor and vendor companies, contracts, privileges, insurances and accesses required per company Conduct identity verification and collecting standard, required documentation on employees for all forms of workers and visitors Run and adjudicate background checks on a continuous basis Provide initial and recurring training to employees, tenants, and vendors prior to granting (or maintaining) access Maintain a credential issuance process based the appropriate security checks and the least-access required to perform a job function(s) Tightly control access to critical infrastructure (NERC) areas Audit and monitor processes, credentials, accesses to ensure continuous compliance with NERC and non-NERC requirements Manage alarms coming from a variety of sources (such as video, intrusion detection sensors, access control alarms) and to acknowledge, assess, and resolve these alarms pursuant to airport policy) Ability to correlate and quickly identify potentially malevolent behavior Solutions enTrilogy provides Solutions to solve these Energy-specific requirements, pain points, and risks.
