Principle: RELIABILITY

Maintenance of Reliable Service Must Be a Key Consideration in Establishing Federal Policy

Reliable electric service is essential for economic growth in our communities. The federal government should be required to conduct a reliability impact assessment prior to the adoption of any significant federal rule.

 

Principle: CYBER & PHYSICAL SECURITY

Adopt and Implement Security Practices that Consider Existing Regulatory Requirements to Establish a Resilient Security Posture

To protect against cyber and physical security threats and build a resilient security posture, LPPC supports a risk-based framework that is adaptable to changing threats and technologies, considers regulatory requirements, encourages best-practice sharing among members, and promotes information sharing and collaboration between industry and government.
