Production facilities can contain thousands of technologies from different vendors. Cybersecurity threats only need to exploit one of them to steal
trade secrets, stop production or even harm workers. To better secure today’s complex and often vulnerable production operations, the ISA Global Cybersecurity Alliance recently announced Rockwell Automation as a founding member.
The alliance is a coalition of industry, government agencies and others working to help secure industrial operations. Some of its objectives include:
• Accelerating the expansion and use of the ISA/IEC 62443 standards.
• Developing a skilled and cyber-aware workforce.
• Optimising compliance and prevention initiatives.
“Cybersecurity is critical to digital transformation,” explains Rockwell Automation CEO, Blake Moret. “It is critical not only for the protection of information and intellectual property but also for the protection of physical assets, the environment and worker safety. Our engagement with the Global Cybersecurity Alliance will be another important step in our efforts to help customers identify and mitigate risks.”
