AlertEnterprise, Inc., a Freemont, California based provider of Security, Risk, and Compliance management software, today introduced a cybersecurity and compliance automation solution for the Nuclear Industry. The Solution is an integrated NEI 08-09 Cyber Security and Compliance Solution designed to analyze risks across IT, Physical Access and Process Control Systems. Published by the Nuclear Energy Institute, NEI 08-09 is a detailed set of guidelines for the Nuclear Industry to abide by when filing cyber security plans as required by the NRC and includes requirements for security assessments of critical systems and assets related to safety, security and emergency preparedness.

The Nuclear Industry is facing a huge pain around assessment, particularly as it pertains to the Critical Digit Asset assessment for NEI 08-09. The solution from AlertEnterprise helps resolve this pain by delivering identification, classification and assessment of CDA’s and the application of appropriate controls in a sustainable and efficient business process. AlertEnterprise helps eliminate time-consuming and extensive manual processes, producing quick results in both assessment and documentation.

Securing Smart Grid

AlertEnterprise counts many utility companies as customers including Florida Power & Light/NextEra, Allegheny Energy, OG&E, Toronto Hydro, and NIPSCO.

AlertEnterprise has the additional unique ability to monitor alerts and events from control systems from vendors like ABB, Siemens, Honeywell, Emerson, SEL, and GE, which gives AlertEnterprise a unique advantage to fully support compliance with NERC CIP, CFATS, FERC Standards of Conduct, NIST SP800-53, FISMA requirements and many others.
