The World’s Only Consensus-Based Automation and Control Systems Cybersecurity Standards – Developed by the International Society of Automation
The Foundation of Our Work is ISA/IEC 62443
Enabling a vigilant proactive cybersecurity culture in every facility
ISAGCA is driven to generate greater industrial reach and awareness of ISA/IEC 62443 - the leading international standards for OT cybersecurity. ISAGCA also works to ensure workforce training and development is aligned with the principles of ISA/IEC 62443, which enables everyone to have a skilled, experienced workforce that drives results. ISA/IEC 62433 provides a common set of requirements that enables product suppliers to deliver reliable, secure, and interoperable devices and systems.
About the ISA/IEC 62443 Series of Standards
Developed by ISA – the International Society of Automation
Using the ISA/IEC 62443 series of standards as a foundation, companies can focus on adopting security as part of the operations lifecycle, ensuring compliance with various aspects of the standards across their supply chains, and including cybersecurity in operational risk-management profiles.
The standards define requirements and procedures for implementing electronically secure automation and industrial control systems and security practices and assessing electronic security performance. The series approaches the cybersecurity challenge in a holistic way, bridging the gap between operations and information technology; and between process safety and cybersecurity.
Focus & Benefits
Documents within the Series
Fourteen standards make up the ISA/IEC 62443 series
The ISA/IEC 62443 series builds on established standards for the security of general-purpose information technology systems (e.g., the ISO/IEC 27000 series), identifying and addressing the important differences present in Industrial Automation and Control Systems (IACS). Many of these differences are based on the reality that cybersecurity risks with IACS may have Health, Safety, or Environment (HSE) implications, and the response should be integrated with other existing risk management practices addressing these risks.
