The IEC 62443 standard suggests that the personnel involved in designing industrial devices and systems must acquire practical skills on how to apply the requirements to products to be put on the market.

You can never know how efficient a safety system is until it is put to the test. Automation is quickly growing and integration between IT technology and OT technology is increasing daily with an enormous amount of data going from OT (Operations Technology) to IT (Information Technology) and vice versa.
We are certain that industrial system safety cannot be guaranteed without appropriate cyber protection. This means that PLCs, HMIs, SCADAs and all automation and control devices must be protected from potential attacks.
In order for all this to be possible, personnel involved in safety and automation must be appropriately trained to understand and prevent cyber risks related to industrial networks and devices.
The goal of our Industrial Cyber Security training is to support you in acquiring key skills to manage machinery and system design according to IEC 62443 standard requirements.
We provide targeted training programs for personnel involved in the manufacturing process in order to understand the conformity requirements of systems and machineries.
Both online and in-person training days can be organized based on what is needed and the number of participants.
The training program develops on the job, as it theoretically and practically follows company roles through the entire device design stage in conformity with IEC 62443 requirements.
Training sessions are given by our in-house IEC 62443/ISA 99-certified specialists and are based on the pillars of Industrial Cyber Security:
- General IEC 62443 standard requirements
- Policies and procedures for compliant industrial control systems
- Allocating safety levels of systems designed in conformity with the standard
The skills acquired during the training course are preparatory both to implement Cyber Security best practices in the design cycle as well as to the possibility of IEC 62443 certification for the industrial components or systems developed.
The skills acquired can be used to immediately manage these issues within one’s organization. The participation is proved by the certificate of attendance.
In IEC 62443/ISA 99 terms, an OT system is defined as a “control system,” that is, a hardware or software component intended to be integrated into a final industrial automation and control system. PLCs, HMIs, SCADA systems, and safety instrumented systems are examples of OT systems.
The legislative references in the IEC 62443 standard directed at OT device manufacturers are found in IEC 62443-4-1 and IEC 62443-4-2 regarding the design requirements in conformity with legislation for systems, sub-systems, or hardware or software components.
As defined in IEC 62443-4-1, the manufacturer is required to implement certain cyber security practices when developing the product:
- Specification of Security Guidelines
- Security by design
- Secure Implementation
- Security V&V Testing
- Security Guidelines
