ISAGCA Releases Position Paper on Requirements for Automation Cybersecurity in Public Policy


The International Society of Automation Global Cybersecurity Alliance (ISAGCA) has released a position paper that outlines the views of the organization and its companies on automation cybersecurity public policy. The paper was developed in response to recent discussions in the U.S. and international governments on how to secure automation and control systems, especially in critical infrastructure.

“It is critically important for legislators and regulators to recognize the urgent need for a unified response to this threat,” said ISA Global Cybersecurity Alliance managing director Andre Ristaino. “Standard definitions and a common language for asset owners, product suppliers, and all other control system stakeholders is necessary to simplify procurement and enable companies to comply with any regulatory efforts. A fully developed ISA/IEC 62443 ecosystem enables facilities and operations across many different industries to achieve industrial control systems and automation cybersecurity.”
