Emerson earns industry-first cybersecurity certification

Apr 23, 2019

Emerson reported March 18 that it's received the industry’s first ISASecure System Security Assurance (SSA) Level 1 certification for cybersecurity from the ISA Security Compliance Institute (ISCI). This certification of Emerson's newest DeltaV DCS is the latest step in its commitment to provide secure digital transformation solutions. SSA Level 1 certification covers the most critical standards of the automation industry’s leading family of standards, ANSI/ISA 62443 (IEC 62443). This ISASecure designation independently certifies that DeltaV control and safety systems are robust against network and system attacks.

“The world’s leading industrial manufacturers are leveraging transformative digital technologies and methods to improve production reliability, safety and overall performance while focusing intensely on cybersecurity,” says Peter Zornio, CTO, Emerson Automation Solutions. “We're committed to helping our customers securely optimize their operations across the globe in an environment of increasing cyber threats.”
