Psicontrol takes the next step in cybersecurity and achieves IEC 62443-4-1 certification
Cybersecurity is moving higher and higher on the agenda for many companies and this definitely applies to both Psicontrol and our customers. Indeed, cyber threats are constantly evolving and also becoming more prevalent.
Our own secure development lifecycle
To meet the increasing need for security in your products, we at Psicontrol have worked hard to develop a Secure Development Lifecycle according to the IEC 62443-4-1 security standard. IEC 62443 is a standard for cybersecurity in automation that is used worldwide and is the most important cybersecurity standard for Psicontrol and our customers. The standard covers the entire lifecycle of design, implementation, operation, and maintenance of industrial automation and control systems. Part 4-1 of this standard specifies process requirements for the secure development of products and components used in these industrial automation and control systems. With our own secure development lifecycle acting as an extension of the existing R&D development process, we are, therefore, able to integrate security in the design of your products. This ranges from risk analyses, through secure hardware and software design to security testing and updates.
IEC 62443-4-1 certificate
At the end of 2023, Psicontrol successfully obtained the IEC 62443-4-1 certificate. After a thorough audit of all our processes by the certification company TÜV Nord, it was determined that our secure development lifecycle meets all the requirements set out by the IEC 62443-4-1 security standard. This represents an important milestone for us that underlines our commitment to ensuring the highest standards of cybersecurity in your products.
By showing a strong commitment to cybersecurity now, Psicontrol aims to ensure we’re ready to catch the next challenging cybersecurity waves.
