NBISE is Building a Better Smart Grid Security Professional

And the good news is, you can help. Click HERE to read a little more about this project, brainchild of erstwhile NERC CSO and overall grid security wunderkind Mike Assante.

If you're like me, you know how hard it is to find experts with solid grounding in IT security, control systems security and electric utility culture. There are, like, a dozen of them in the wild. And well, they're all a bit too busy to help with your problems. So Mike and his National Bureau of Information Security Examiners (NBISErs) colleagues have decided to grow them.

The SGSB has mentioned NBISE before (like HERE for instance). But now with a new website and a more mature plan, it's time the larger community gave them a real look. Another interesting new development you might want to start with is their ADAPTS program. Want it spelled out for you? That's Advanced Defender Aptitude and Performance Testing and Simulation. Good organization; great acronym.
