Examples of such systems can be Distributed Control Systems (DCS), Programmable Logic Controllers (PLC), smart meters or Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition systems (SCADA). Due to their wide spread, as well as the criticality of domains in which they are used, the security of Industrial Control Systems and components should be equally taken into account, together with other aspects such as performance or safety.

Assessing, demonstrating compliance or obtaining relevant security certifications for your products, solutions and organizations is an important action in order to improve their security, obtain the clearance for specific markets, and ultimately showcase their value to the patients or healthcare institutions. Secura can support you with several testing and certification possibilities.

Testing

Secura can provide testing services in line with the relevant security publications addressing the domain of ICS SCADA. The offered testing services are presented below.

IEC 62443

IEC

Secura has extensive experience in the interpretation and practical applicability of the internationally recognized IEC 62443 standard. Several parts of this standard can be of value to highlight the security of the product or development processes. IEC 62443-4-2 and IEC 62443-3-3 can be used to validate the security of ICS products or integrated systems. IEC 62443-4-1 can be used to validate the security of the development processes.

Secura ICS Devices Security Framework

Secura

In order to provide a flexible approach to the manufacturers, Secura has developed its own testing framework, based on state of the art security guidelines such IEC 62443, UL 2900 or NIST SP 800-82. Testing your product against the requirements of the framework allows manufacturers to select the depth of testing, thus perfectly addressing their needs.

Certification

Certification allows to put official recognition on the results of an assessment for your product, processes or solution. Secura can support you with certification services based on the following schemes:

IECEE

IECEE

The IECEE scheme operates based on the IEC 62443 cybersecurity standards, allowing the evaluation of the ICS devices, integrated systems or secure development processes. For components and systems, IEC 62443-4-2 and IEC 62443-3-3 can be used, while IEC 62443-4-1 can be used for the certification of development processes. Secura, in collaboration with its partner IECEE Certification Bodies, can support you in this process.

Common Criteria

Common Criteria

Common Criteria is an internationally recognized security assessment and certification methodology. Common Criteria certificates are mutually recognized across continents, including most of EU, USA, Asia, Australia, UK, etc.

Secura can support with Common Criteria evaluations, under the Dutch Common Criteria scheme NSCIB.
