Siemens gains IEC 62443 certification for secure system integration services

The picture shows the presentation of the certificates within the SPS IPC Drives 2018

At this year's SPS IPC Drives, Siemens was presented with three certificates by TÜV SÜD. The certification in compliance with IEC 62443-2-4 is based on the "Secure Solution Framework", a generic product processing and engineering process developed by Siemens, and the necessary security documentation.
Forming the essential basis for the IEC-62443-3-3 certification of standard solutions from Siemens are the Simatic PCS 7 process control system and the Simatic Net portfolio comprising switches, routers and firewalls.
The international IEC 62443 standard describes an IT security concept based on the multi-layered "Defense-in-Depth" approach. This entails the direct integration of device and system suppliers, system integrators and operators, making them an integral part of the overall solution. On the basis of the IEC 62443, companies are able to review potential weak spots in their control and management technology and develop effective protective measures.

Holistic security enables digitalization

To enable the further development of security-certified automation products and systems, Siemens is pursuing a holistic security approach. By gaining certification compliant to IEC 62443-2-4 and -3-3 for project processing in the industrial solutions sector, Siemens is demonstrating that its own automation solutions are based on the very latest international standards when it comes to cyber security, making them the ideal choice for secure system integration - to the benefit of its customers. With cyber security representing one of the most important building blocks of the digital transformation, simply relying on the security of certified products and systems is not enough. Alongside a secure operator concept, secure system integration and solution implementation in conformity with IEC62443 must form part of any truly secure solution.
