Alliance will provide additional resources for innovative NERC CIP compliance solutions for companies
Portland, Oregon, September 16, 2016 (Newswire.com) – Archer Security Group announced today that it is has joined Tripwire’s NERC Alliance Network, a collaboration of companies that offer high quality energy sector and NERC-focused solutions, services and technologies.
“Security is not a one-size-fits-all type of discipline. It takes an army at times to address the needs of an organization,” said Stacy Bresler, managing partner at Archer Security Group. “An alliance with Tripwire helps place more pieces of the security puzzle together for our customers.”
Archer Security Group is an international security consulting firm with a focus on mission-critical cyber and physical security. Every one of its regulatory compliance consultants has extensive experience in NERC CIP, including participating in the NERC CIP drafting teams, implementing the standards at utilities and/or holding responsibility for auditing the standards as the compliance enforcement authority.
Archer’s security consultants have vast experience in critical infrastructure security in other areas as well, including oil and gas, transportation, finance, food and beverage, and many other sectors.
“We’re a strategic advisory company in the NERC CIP space. We don’t implement a product,” said Patrick C. Miller, managing partner at Archer. “If Archer has a customer who needs technology solutions to mature their compliance program, we can find technology partners through the NERC Alliance Network.”
“Tripwire is a pioneer in the security technology business,” said Bresler. “They are award-winning giants in our industry. When there is a union of excellence formed, we are able to bring the unique strengths of each organization together to the benefit of the customer.”
“The energy sector is a tight-knit community, and not every problem has a technology answer,” said Tim Erlin, director of IT risk and security strategist for Tripwire. “Archer’s deep expertise will add strength and breadth to the NERC Alliance Network. We’re really looking forward to working collaboratively on solving NERC compliance challenges for our mutual customers.”
