What is Cyber Security?
Cyber Security in the context of Industrial Automation and Control Systems (IACS) is getting more and more importance. In the age of digitalization, there is nothing more important than protecting data – not just typical company business data, but data related to the industrial production processes too. Worldwide, a permanently increasing number of industrial companies of any size and sector have already been the target of cyber attacks. Many companies are aware that cyber crime poses a danger, but underestimate the costly consequences to their machinery, plant equipment and more important to Safety, Health and Environment (SHE). Industrial or IACS Cyber Security helps in preventing failures, sabotage, or data loss, and thus protect production operations against significant financial losses.
Different standards, frameworks and guidelines define requirements related to IACS Cyber Security, where the international series of standards ISA/IEC 62443 is considered one of the most important ones. To understand the details of ISA/IEC 62443 and its requirements a fundamental knowledge of Cyber Security related topics is of key importance.
