ISA/IEC 62443 IIoT Certifications Study Review (October 27th, 2021 - 11 AM Eastern Time)

The ISA Global Security Alliance (ISAGCA) and the ISASecure Program recently released a co-sponsored Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) certification study entitled, “IIoT Component Certification Based on the 62443 Standard.”
The study addresses the urgent need for industry-vetted IIoT certification programs, with the goal of determining the applicability of the ISA/IEC 62443 series of standards and certifications to IIoT components and systems. This included examining whether existing 62443 requirements and methods for validating these requirements under existing certification programs are necessary and sufficient for the IIoT environment.
This webinar will provide an overview of the study and its findings.
