ISA Security Compliance Institute opens membership
Research Triangle Park, N.C., November 1 -- During a formal planning teleconference last month, Founding Members of the ISA Security Compliance Institute announced the immediate opening of all membership levels in the ISASecure program for industrial automation controls security standards compliance.
Membership levels in the ISA Security Compliance Institute include Strategic Members, Technical Members and Informational Members. Founding Strategic Members are Strategic Members who have committed to two years of membership and funding to ensure the successful launch of the ISASecure program.
Detailed descriptions of membership levels, entitlements, membership fee structure, and join instructions are available on the ISASecure website at www.isa.org/ISASecure.
The ISA Security Compliance Institute establishes an ISASecure designation, which identifies and promotes security standards-compliant products and systems in the industrial automation controls industry. Certification provides formal recognition of a product's compliance to an industry standard security specification, creating a key differentiator for the product in the marketplace. Compliant products are entitled to carry the ISASecure designation, providing instant recognition of the product's security characteristics to asset owners, integrators, and the buying public.
Other announcements include extending the open period for Founding Strategic Membership applications through 31 December 2007.
The Institute's Founding Members will meet again this month to address organization building, compliance initiatives, and to set the agenda for a Founder's meeting covering governance topics at the SANS Conference, January 12-16 in New Orleans.
"The Founding Members elected to open all membership levels immediately to encourage full participation from the automation controls community," stated Andre Ristaino, Managing Director of ASCI. "We are looking forward to the contributions of talented security experts from key technology providers and asset owners who have made commitments at the Technical Membership level."
Organizations in the automation controls community who are interested in the ISASecure program should contact Ristaino at email@example.com or 919-990-9222.
