ISSAQUAH, Wash. (Oct. 11, 2022) – Seeking to bolster its capabilities to meet the North American Electric Reliability Corporation Critical Infrastructure Protection (NERC CIP) physical security requirements, NAES Corporation is partnering with Convergint, a leading global systems integration company, to provide enhanced physical security services for critical infrastructure in the power and energy sector.
“This is an important alliance for NAES,” said Norm Escover, president and CEO of NAES, the energy industry’s largest independent providers of operations, maintenance and repair services. ‘It will enable us to provide our clients with a broad range of cost-effective solutions for delivering best-in-class security and maintenance monitoring.”
Through this collaboration, NAES Corporation will leverage Convergint’s technology and expertise, enabling it to implement industrial physical security programs that exceed NERC’s new compliance standards and protect critical personnel information, assets, and investments, ultimately delivering a more secure nationwide power grid.
Convergint provides solutions for physical and electronic security that go beyond NERC CIP’s physical security requirements. The company’s portfolio of technologies also allows for hybrid utilization of equipment to address both security and maintenance concerns. These solutions for security and monitoring can be tailored to each client’s specific needs to ensure that compliance with applicable NERC CIP Standards is maintained through either individual security system components or through complete physical systems.
