SHORT DESCRIPTION: Requirements for Accessing ERCOT Systems
INTENDED AUDIENCE: All Market Participants
DAY AFFECTED: June 3, 2008
LONG DESCRIPTION: After conferring with other Independent System Operator (ISO) staff and North American Electric Reliability Corporation (NERC) staff, ERCOT has determined that Market Participants (MPs) accessing ERCOT Systems via Digital Certificates do not need to fulfill the requirements of Training and Personnel Risk Assessment identified in NERC Standard CIP-004-1, Cyber Security – Personnel & Training, by July 1, 2008 as originally contemplated. MPs will need to complete the NERC-required Training and Personnel Risk Assessment pursuant to the timeline applying to each of their companies.
ERCOT Protocol Section 16.11, User Security Administrator and Digital Certificates, specifies the requirements for issuing Digital Certificates to users by the User Security Administrator. Compliance with these Protocol requirements is necessary and sufficient for MP users who access ERCOT Systems.
