OT/IT Cybersecurity

Convergence between industrial networks (OTs) and information networks (IT) imposes new threats and risks in the world of industry. Beyond the classical risk of data loss, and financial impact the lack operational cyber security may endanger safety of people and in extreme case may impact public safety.

In order to minize those risks, CertX is providing comprehenive services regarding OT and IT cyber security as well as data privacy.

Think like a hacker

Our certification programs have been developed by cybersecurity specialist, initially trained to perform penetration tests and support secure system/infrastructure development. Based on that strong cybersecurity knowledge , our dedicated department can help you to anticipate potential future cyber risks thanks to this offensive spirit that we cultivate.

An unique cross-sector experience

We are strongly believe that experiences from all sectors should be considered as key inputs for other ones. In this regard, our cybersecurity department keeps updated, follows and participates to the development of future cybersecurity standards in several domains such as Energy, Automotive, Railway, Healthcare, Drones…

Our participation to international standardization committees gives to our clients a strong confidence to initiate cyber security related improvements

Standardization for supporting regulation compliance


Across all industries, regulations are evolving to incorporate cyber security aspects as foundational requirements. Whether through the publication of the NIS/NIS2 (Directive on Security of Network and Information Systems), the CSA (Cybersecurity Act) or the GDPR (General Data Privacy Regulation), implementation and demonstration of good security practices from organizations will become mandatory in a near future.

That is typically the case across the automotive industry where the UNECE WP.29/R155 cyber security requirements for future authorization scheme of road vehicles has been approved and published in June 2020

Demonstration of Cyber Security Management System (CSMS) by automotive stakeholders will become mandatory for new vehicle type approvals as of July 2022 and, records of security activities for every new vehicle produced as of July 2024. For establishing relevant management systems and handling cyber security across organization, a new standard called ISO/SAE 21443 has been specifically developed for such purpose, and in alignement with other existing frameworka applied through the automotive industry (e.g. ISO/SAE 26262).

It takes 20 years to build a reputation and few minutes for a hacker to ruin it. CertX improves your defence.
