The ISA Security Compliance Institute (ISCI) and DNV GL - Digital Solutions have signed an agreement allowing DNV GL to conduct cybersecurity certification assessments as an ISO/IEC 17065 accredited ISASecure certification body.

The ISASecure certification programme, developed within the International Society of Automation, certifies conformance to the ISA/IEC 62443 series of internationally adopted industrial cybersecurity standards. ISASecure assesses automation and control products and systems to ensure they are robust against network attacks, free from known vulnerabilities, and meet the security capabilities defined in the ISA/IEC 62443 standards. All ISASecure certifications are conducted by globally recognised ISO/IEC 17065 accredited certification bodies.

Through its agreement with the ISASecure programme, DNV GL will become the third certification body within the ISASecure certification program in South East Asia. The ISASecure programme — which currently has ISO/IEC 17065  accredited certification bodies in the US, Japan, Germany, and soon, Canada — is rapidly expanding its global reach through additional agreements with certification bodies around the globe who are in the accreditation process.

“At DNV GL, we’re dedicated to improving maritime and energy sector safety and integrity, and providing high-quality certification services. Companies rely on DNV GL to manage their critical risks and demonstrate compliance with regulations and standards,” said Mathias Steck, Regional Manager, Digital Hub, Asia at DNV GL - Digital Solutions. “By joining the ISASecure program, we’re able to meet our customers’ growing demand for automation and control system cybersecurity using the internationally accepted, consensus-based ISA/IEC 62443 standards.”

Andre Ristaino, MD of the ISASecure Programme, said, “We’re pleased to welcome DNV GL as an ISASecure certification body. As an international company with a solid reputation, DNV GL provides additional credibility to the ISASecure programme; and enables companies in their region to do business locally and extends global coverage for cybersecurity certification of automation.”

Founded in 2007 as a wholly owned subsidiary of the International Society of Automation, the ISA Security Compliance Institute’s mission is to provide the highest level of assurance possible for the cyber security of automation control systems. The ISASecure designation ensures that automation and control system products conform to industry consensus cyber security standards such as ISA/IEC 62443, providing confidence to users of ISASecure products and systems and creating product differentiation for suppliers conforming to the ISASecure specification.
