The use of commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) technologies and the increase in internetworking of Industrial Automation and Control Systems (IACS) has exposed IACS to similar vulnerabilities as information systems. The product supplier has a key role to play in the supply chain and the security of an IACS solution.

This course provides an overview of how the ISA/IEC 62443 series of standards can be used by the supplier to implement a security development lifecycle, and to develop IACS systems and components that are secure by design and offer security by default. The course also covers how to independently certify that these systems and components comply with the relevant ISA/IEC 62443 standards. By understanding the value of ISA/IEC 62443 standards the product supplier can incorporate these standards, into their business and communicate the standards’ value within their organization and to their customers.
