Amazon Web Service joins ISA Program in support of the global ISASecure

Recently, the ISA Security Compliance Institute (ISCI) has welcome the Amazon Web Services (AWS) as the latest ISCI member.
In the industrial sector, companies around the world are adopting AWS to take advantage of industrial internet of things (IIoT), artificial intelligence (AI), and machine learning (ML) capabilities needed to drive operational efficiencies in their smart factories and industrial operations. Continuous digitalization and progressive interconnectivity of the production environment is important for capturing value from IIoT solutions. AWS and AWS IoT services are key to providing safe and secure industrial digital transformation.
“Joining ISA Security Compliance Institute demonstrates AWS’s commitment to advancing cybersecurity standards and certification for the global community of manufacturers, government agencies, and all industrial customers,” stated Brad Behm, Senior Principal Technologist, AWS.
With the increasing proliferation of IIoT systems and cloud services for innovation and digital transformation, government agencies and industrial customers are faced with protecting an expanding attack surface. The ISA/IEC 62443 series of standards was written before IIoT technologies were common, but provides a strong basis for securing these environments.
“AWS is committed to collaborating with the ISA Global Cybersecurity Alliance (ISAGCA), ISCI, the ISA99 standards committee, and industry partners, to update the ISA/IEC 62443 series of standards and certifications to ensure that all parties properly address emerging IIoT security requirements; all while advocating for vendor-neutral, interoperable, international standards-based operational technolgoy (OT) and IIoT cybersecurity solutions,” stated Ryan Dsouza, Principal IIoT Security Solution Architect, AWS.
As a member of ISASecure, AWS joins thought leaders who are taking action to secure automation and control systems around the world, including support for product conformity assessment to ISA/IEC 62443 standards. The ISA/IEC 62443 series of standards are designed to provide a flexible set of requirements to address and mitigate current and future security threats in automation and control systems products, system implementations, and ongoing operations.

AWS’s membership provides leadership for establishing ISA/IEC 62443 standards and ISASecure as the basis for securing operational technology in automotive, CPG, energy, manufacturing, pharmaceutical, power & utilities, transportation, smart buildings and smart cities around the globe.
