Industry-first cybersecurity certification issued

22 March 2019

Emerson has received the industry’s first ISASecure System Security Assurance (SSA) Level 1 certification for cybersecurity for its latest DeltaV distributed control system (DCS).

The certification, issued by ISA Security Compliance Institute (ISCI) provides independent certification that systems are robust against network and system attacks. 

DeltaV, an advanced automation system that simplifies operational complexity and lowers project risk, provides smart control capabilities for key industries in oil and gas operations, refineries, chemical plants, power and life science facilities.
 
The ISA cybersecurity certification is designed to help the industry navigate the fast changing digital landscape and recognise products with enhanced cybersecurity measures. ISASecure SSA Level 1 certification covers the most critical standards of the automation industry’s leading family of standards, ANSI/ISA 62443 (IEC 62443).
 
“ISA developed the ISASecure cybersecurity certification to give asset owners confidence in their industrial control systems and to promote supplier best practices that protect automation systems and the operations they control,” said Andre Ristaino, managing director of ISCI. “Emerson is taking a leading role that we hope other vendors will follow in further protecting personnel and processes alike from today’s increasing security threats.”
