The increasing prevalence of cyber-physical systems has a significant impact on industries worldwide. Across a variety of businesses, from manufacturing and processing plants, to energy suppliers and rail, cyber-physical systems are implemented to enable higher efficiencies, unmatched flexibility and innovative business models. But the new connectivity also translates into a shift in the risk landscape, as cyberattacks are increasing. Against this backdrop, suppliers and system integrators must optimize the cyber resilience of their components and systems by improving their development, integration and support processes.
IEC 62443 standard for Cyber Security has been developed by International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) in order to enhance and improve Industrial Automation and Control Systems (IACS). As IEC 62443 is slowly progressing as a mandatory requirement for an OT Cyber resilience, this session would discuss about the Indian adaptability in terms of its end-user perception.

Aiming to mitigate risk for industrial communication networks, the international standard IEC 62443 provides a structured approach to cybersecurity. Through a set of defined process requirements, the standard ensures that all applicable security aspects are addressed in a structured manner. This includes a systematic approach to cybersecurity throughout the stages of specification, integration, operation, maintenance and decommissioning.
TÜV SÜD is one of the first companies to provide certifications according to IEC 62443. Suppliers and system integrators worldwide partner with us to confirm their compliance to applicable requirements, as laid out in the standard. The table below summarises the IEC 62443 service portfolio of TÜV SÜD:
For product suppliers, TÜV SÜD provides certification services based on IEC 62443-4-1 -“Secure Product Development Lifecycle". Corresponding certifications are available to system integrators based on IEC 62443-2-4 -“Security Program for Service Providers”. Besides the process aspects during product development and system integration, IEC 62443 also specifies technical security requirements for components and systems, which are described in IEC 62443-4-2 and IEC 62443-3-3.
