The first international standard that outlines a set of specific requirements focusing on cyber security best practices for suppliers of industrial automation and control systems is out and ready to go.

“This is an important step in the ongoing process to improve the reliability of our critical manufacturing and production systems and provides end-users the ability to now communicate their expectations about the security of process automation, control and safety systems,” said Alex van Delft, Competence Manager Process Control at DSM and Chairman of the WIB, the International Instrument Users Association, an organization that provides process instrumentation evaluation and assessment services for its over 25 end-user members.
