ISA White Paper Examines ISO/IEC 27001/2 and ISA/IEC 62443 for Operational Technology Environments


The International Society of Automation (ISA) and the ISA Global Cybersecurity Alliance (ISAGCA) have released a new white paper, “Applying ISO/IEC 27001/2 and the ISA/IEC 62443 Series for Operational Technology Environments.”

The paper is written to support organizations familiar with the International Organization for Standardization/International Electrotechnical Commission (ISO/IEC) standard to protect their operating facility’s operational technology (OT) infrastructure by applying the ISA/IEC series of standards. It provides information on the relationship between the ISA/IEC series and the ISO/IEC standard, and how the documents can be used in a complementary approach within one organization to protect both IT and OT.

“I often hear the debate about whether to use ISO/IEC 27001/2 or ISA/IEC 62443 for securing OT infrastructure,” said Andre Ristaino, managing director of ISAGCA. “The right answer is both, and this white paper describes how these two globally-accepted standards can be used together for establishing an integrated, company-wide cybersecurity plan.”
