Presented by: Chris Unton, Midwest ISO (MISO)
Abstract: MISO embarked on a structured, comprehensive process improvement program to make advancements in cyber security risk reduction as well as CIP compliance. The program utilizes the Six Sigma framework to reduce process defects and gain efficiencies. The 13 month effort comprises process level health checks; assignment of functional roles, responsibilities, and oversight; cross-functional process improvement events; and training/awareness curriculums to lock in the improvements. As a result, MISO not only is strengthening its cyber security and compliance posture, but also positioning the company for a smoother adoption of controls based audits when applicable. In this presentation, Mr. Unton will walk through the process and show how this has been instrumental in greatly enhancing MISO’s security and compliance environment.
