  • Certification Project for Siemens Digital Industries

    We audited and certified the first-ever reference architectures tailored specifically to the water industry (e.g. fresh water, wastewater, desalination) in April 2020. The blueprints were provided by Siemens and were certified to an international, industrial standard. Increased digitisation means a higher need for cybersecurity, and Siemens has been offering seamless cybersecurity concepts to many users and companies for a long time. However, as digitisation increases exponentially, this heightened threat has seen legislators across the world demand that operators of critical infrastructures all protect themselves. For industries such as water management, this will be the first time that cybersecurity is an issue on such a scale. This of course brings with it its own set of new criteria, meaning that IT service providers had the challenge of coming up with entirely new programmes suited to the industry. The certification confirms that both Siemens processes and the technical reference architecture adhere to the security requirements of the standards and is the first of its kind in the water industry and in a long tradition of IEC 62443 certifications from TÜV SÜD for Siemens.

  • The Charter of Trust: Making the Digital World Safer
