With TÜV SÜD’s expertise in testing and verifying products according to IEC 62443 standards, and the current Chartered Laboratory authorisation by ISCI, we expanded our certification portfolio offerings for industrial products to our customers.

Mr. Andre Ristaino, Managing Director, ISA Security Compliance Institute, said, “Achieving the ISASecure accreditation is a high bar for certification bodies and TÜV SÜD exemplifies the level of excellence sought by the ISASecure® program. We look forward to working with TÜV SÜD in securing automation that affects our everyday lives and elevating Operational Technology (OT) cybersecurity from an art to an engineering discipline.”
Mr. Richard Hong, CEO, TÜV SÜD ASEAN added, “The growing use of industrial automation and control systems increases the need for improvement in quality and expertise in cybersecurity. In such scenarios, independent robust evaluation, coupled with domain expertise is imperative. Aligned to Singapore’s Cybersecurity Strategy, TÜV SÜD can support and evaluate the development lifecycle process of product manufacturers and help both suppliers and asset-owner companies anticipate potential weaknesses of their automation and control technologies, and counter them with effective protection measures.”
