With the growth of IIoT in industrial control systems used in hazardous locations, there is a need for cybersecurity testing of components, products and systems to mitigate the risk. Cybersecurity is critically important for any hazardous location facility to prevent the risk of fire or explosion as well as to optimize operational efficiency. While many specifications and guidance documents provide information on secure product development principles, there is still a need to test and measure the security posture of products using comprehensive testing criteria and an important certification management process throughout the life of a component.
Create brand differentiation and strengthen product preference with UL’s practical and scalable cybersecurity advisory, testing and certification solutions for hazardous locations. Through the implementation of criteria within IEC 62443, Industrial Communication Networks – Network and System Security, or UL 2900-2-2, Standard for Software Cybersecurity for Network-Connectable Devices, it is possible to reinforce brand trust through cybersecurity market leadership.
UL, a leader in global safety science, has over 100 years of experience with Hazardous Locations. From research to testing to global conformity assessment schemes (IECEx, ATEX, INMETRO, UL/C-UL), UL drives advancements in codes and standards to meet product safety, performance and interoperability needs of today’s complex global supply chain.
