Video: Certified Security In The Development Process
At these locations, Simatic S7 industrial controls, Simatic industrial PCs, Simatic HMI (Human Machine Systems Interface) devices for operator control and monitoring and Sinamics drives up to the engineering software TIA (Totally Integrated Automation) portal are developed. The international series of standards IEC 62443 defines the security measures for industrial automation systems, whereby part 4-1 of the standard describes the requirements for the development process of the manufacturer.
Focus on industrial security
The TÜV SÜD certificate is based on the standard IEC 62443-4-1 (Secure Product Development Lifecycle Requirements, Draft 3 Edition 10, 01.2016) with security-relevant aspects such as skills and expertise, security of third-party components, process and quality assurance Architecture and secure design, vulnerability management to security update, patch and change management. As a leading automation and software provider for industry, Siemens is continuously improving its products and solutions with regard to industrial security.
This also includes the certification based on IEC 62443-4-1. With this, the company documents its "Security by Design" approach for automation products and offers integrators and operators transparent insight into IT security measures. Integrators and operators use this for the conception and operation of automation processes and systems with Siemens technology and a "Defense in Depth" protection concept.
Defense in depth as a protection concept
In order to provide comprehensive protection for industrial plants against cyber attacks from inside and outside, it has to be applied at all levels at the same time - from the operational to the field level, from access control to copy protection. For this purpose, Siemens relies on the defense in depth as a comprehensive protection concept, in accordance with the recommendations of the IEC 62443 series of standards, the leading standard for security in industrial automation.
