The growth of digitization in manufacturing and critical infrastructure demands that products become smarter and more interconnected. As a result, they also become more vulnerable to cyberthreats. Network segmentation and firewalls for these components are no longer a sufficient means to address cyberthreats.This is due to the increased use of standardized hardware and software components in networked automation and control systems.
Greater connectivity has added significant benefits to production, such as data analytics, predictive and preventive maintenance, remote management and interoperability of systems. With these benefits also comes the added challenge of security of the control infrastructure from cyberthreats that can cause:
- Unplanned downtime
- Loss of data
- Costly harm to assets
- Health risks or loss of life
- Reputational damage
The need for strong security practices
Today, asset owners of plants or critical infrastructure are demanding suppliers of industrial automation systems to provide evidence of their security diligence in their practices and supply chain management. The International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) 62443 family of standards offers guidance for you to build strong security measures into your processes to help mitigate these security risks for asset owners.
You can take advantage of aligning organizational security practices with IEC 62443-2-4 or security functions with IEC 62443-3-3. You can provide security assurance to customers of your secure software development life cycle process utilizing IEC 62443- 4-1 and security functions in IEC 62443-3-3.
Leverage our cybersecurity expertise and integrity to gain transparency and validation of supply chain security for a more secure and robust operating environment. We can help any industrial control system (ICS) manufacturer or system integrator earn customer confidence in the cyber-readiness of both their organizational security practices and system security.
