Release date: 9/1/2022
Certify IIoT components using the ISASecure ICSA certification, based on the ISA/IEC 62443 series of standards.
The ISASecure program is announcing the new ISASecure certification offering 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 published in the joint ISA Global Security Alliance (ISAGCA) and ISA Security Compliance Institute (ISCI) study. Details of this landmark study are available in the Learning Center section of the ISASecure website and were presented during our October 2021 webinar. The study and resulting ISASecure IIOT certification scheme address the urgent need for industry vetted IIoT certification programs.
Join us on 7 September 2022 at 11am ET for a live webinar where we will be presenting this important new certification offering. This webinar will provide an overview of the new ISASecure IIOT Device and Gateway certification program and its basis in the ISA/IEC 62443 set of industry standards. Register here.
Founded in 2007, the ISA Security Compliance Institute’s (ISCI) 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.
The Institute was established by thought leaders from major organizations in the automation controls community seeking to improve the cybersecurity posture of critical infrastructure for generations to come. Prominent ISASecure supporters include Chevron, ExxonMobil, Saudi Aramco, Shell, Honeywell, Schneider Electric, TUV Rheinland, Yokogawa, YPF, exida, GE Digital, Synopsis, CSSC, IPA-Japan, FM Approvals, and others.
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. The ISASecure designation ensures that automation products conform to industry consensus cybersecurity standards such as ISA/IEC 62443, providing confidence to users of ISASecure products and systems and creating product differentiation for suppliers conforming to the ISASecure specification.
