We celebrate our thirtieth anniversary, and look forward to keep working for many more years.
Cybersecurity is a demand and an essential requirement in the growing and fast-paced IT markets and applications, extending from the demanding field of the new industry (eg 4.0) to current end-consumer environments and new applications of the Internet of Things ( IoT). Traditional approaches to compliance-oriented cybersecurity are obsolete and not sufficient. The growing demand is accompanied by a combination of real public cases of vulnerabilities and attacks on services and content, together with a confusing regulatory situation and standardized tools that allow the industry and its users to establish common criteria for protection and security against cyberthreats.
The International Electrotechnical Commission, better known by its acronym in English: IEC (International Electrotechnical Commission) is developing a new family of standards. The 62433 standard is based on the work of ISA99, specifying the requirements of security against external threats and without losing the functional safety features thereof.
