ISASecure Announces Certification for IIoT Component Security

The ISASecure program announced a new ISASecure certification for Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) components based on the ISA/IEC 62443 series of standards. The IIoT Component Security Assurance (ICSA) certification was inspired by recommendations from a joint study published by the ISA Global Security Alliance (ISAGCA) and ISA Security Compliance Institute (ISCI).

The certification addresses the urgent need for an industry-vetted IIoT certification program. More information about the ISASecure IIoT Device and Gateway certification program and its basis in the ISA/IEC 62443 series of industry standards is available in a free webinar.

Founded in 2007, the ISA Security Compliance Institute’s mission is to provide the highest level of assurance possible for the cybersecurity of automation control systems. ISCI has been conducting ISASecure certifications on automation and control systems since 2011 through its network of ISO/IEC 17065 accredited certification bodies.

Details of the ISAGCA/ISCI study are available in the Learning Center section of the ISASecure website. The full ISAGCA/ISCI study is available for download.

The Institute was established by major organizations in the automation controls community that wanted to improve the cybersecurity posture of critical infrastructure for generations to come. Prominent ISASecure supporters include Chevron, ExxonMobil, Saudi Aramco, Shell, Honeywell, Schneider Electric, TÜV Rheinland, Yokogawa, YPF, exida, GE Digital, Synopsis, CSSC, CSA Group and IPA-Japan. The Institute’s goals are realized through ISASecure compliance programs, education, technical support and improvements in suppliers’ development processes and users’ life cycle management practices.
