IEC62443 and NIS Directive: Needs and Opportunities
Under the NIS directive, industrial components belonging to the definition of critical infrastructure need are identified as high-risk assets. The Cyber Security Act (CSA) could make the certification of certain devices in this area to pass a formal security certification. In parallel, the industry under the umbrella of the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) has developed over the past years the IEC-62443 standard series. This presentation will focus on the possible areas of overlapping between what IEC62443 offers in terms of device certification and what could be expect under the CSA, exploring mechanism for making use of best practices.
