I presume you mean on the attic side of the joist. You may run romex across the top of the joists. If it is within 6 ft. of an access opening it must be protected by either running it in a channel (the strapping you describe?) or by drilling through the joist (which I presume you do not want to do.) (Dont drill a truss cord)
