TÜV-Süd certifies Siemens for cybersecurity of process control system in the water, wastewater and desalination industries

28 August 2023

The advancing networking and digitisation of automation and IT systems as well as the growing threat of cyber-attacks require increased investments in the protection of plants and systems to ensure security of supply.

Siemens offers certified security concepts such as the defense-in-depth concept and special reference architectures for the water/wastewater/desalination industry. These blueprints were recertified in April 2023 and are available to project teams as well as system integrators. 

During recertification, all relevant innovations from IT-SiG 2.0, such as anomaly detection, were implemented. The documents are available to system integrators as well as Siemens project teams and provide a basis for secure automation systems for critical infrastructure and enable low-effort and low-risk adaptations to customer-specific requirements. 

Siemens supports the water industry in achieving the necessary security levels in accordance with national standards through in-depth defense for plant security, network security and system integrity based on Simatic PCS 7.
