ICS Cybersecurity a growing challenge

The growing prevalence of standardized hardware and software now being used in heavily networked automation and control infrastructures has led to a rapidly increasing potential for cyber threats and risks. Few years ago, no internationally valid standards existed for IT security certification of Industrial Automation and Control Systems (IACS). The IEC 62443 family of standards now provides a basis for such cyber security certification.

CertX represents the first Swiss Certification Body offering IACS cyber security certifications according to IEC 62443.
