ISA Whitepaper: Implementing an industrial cybersecurity program

11 January 2022

ISA/IEC 62443 provides a powerful tool to reduce the risk of financial, reputational, human, and environmental impact from cyberattacks on industrial automation and control systems (IACS).

However, as a ‘horizontal standard’, 62443 is meant to address a wide range of industries, and any specific company is likely to find that while most of the standard applies to their IACS, parts of it may not. For example, some ‘normative requirements’ that are appropriate for an interstate pipeline, may not be relevant to a chemical plant or a discrete manufacturing facility. There are also obvious differences between a large-scale corporation with many sites and thousands of employees, and a small company with a few dozen staff.

This white paper is intended to address the needs of Owner/Operators of industrial facilities. It will discuss the following:

1. What is an IACS Cybersecurity Program?
2. Preparing an IACS Cybersecurity Program
3. How does an IACS Cybersecurity program relate to IT Cybersecurity?
4. Costs and Benefits of an IACS Cybersecurity Program
5. What to do next
