Please see the below NERC email regarding an upcoming major update to the NERC Alert System. If you have a NERC Alert Login, we highly encourage you to log on to the current system and make a note of your current password as you will need it to log on to the new system for the first time.

Prior to the rollout (which is expected to be in the 3rd week of February), you will also need to install the Microsoft Authenticator App to your mobile device. NERC will be sending out more detailed instructions before the official rollout.
