Build Customer Confidence in the Security of IIoT Products with CSA Group

Ranging from simple to highly complex, Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) products are typically designed to better control our environments. With the increased benefits realized with these cyber-physical systems come (often substantially) increased cybersecurity risks.

Manufacturers of industrial connected devices are expected to have a robust product lifecycle in place that incorporates security risk management at every phase, from design inception through to the end of support. Following a secure product lifecycle process is expected to result in a more secure connected device. Manufacturers are then faced with assuring their customers and product users that their products are equipped with expected security features and are demonstrably secure.

The IEC 62443 standards series is an internationally-recognized set of published standards that establish baseline security expectations and guidance for organizational programs, processes, products, and services. Manufacturers are able to leverage these standards to help implement their security risk management programs and to design and provide secure, trustworthy products, systems, and services.
