Announcing General Availability of ISA/IEC 62443-2-1 Workflow in the SecurityGate Platform

We are thrilled to share that we have added ISA/IEC 62443-2-1 to the SecurityGate Platform. This update will assist users in creating a robust IACS (Industrial Automation and Control Systems) Security Program, enabling them to strengthen their security measures and safeguard their systems.   

Overview of ISA/IEC 62443-2-1  

Part 2-1 of the ISA/IEC 62443 series of standards describes what is required to define and implement an effective IACS cybersecurity management system. The audience includes asset owners responsible for the design and implementation of such a program.  

In the context of Part 2-1, the asset owner is also the operator of the IACS and the equipment under control. The security program covers the entire lifecycle of the IACS. It consists of implementing and maintaining personnel, policy and procedural, and technology-based capabilities that reduce cybersecurity risk. 

A security program consists of the implementation and maintenance of personnel, policy & procedural, and technology-based capabilities that reduce cybersecurity risk. The security program must be coordinated with the organization’s overall Information Security Management System (ISMS). The ISMS sets the overall security governance.  

Connection between 3-2 and 2-1  

ISA/IEC 62443-3-2, which is the Security Risk Assessment for the system design is already available in the SecurityGate Platform. The figure below shows the relationship between 3-2 and 2-1.  




Conducting an ISA/IEC 62443-2-1 Assessment in the SecurityGate Platform  

The ISA 62443-2-1:2009 assessment in the SecurityGate Platform includes a total of 153 questions and guides the user on what should be included in a Cyber Security Management System (CSMS) for IACS and how to go about developing the CSMS for IACS.   

The assessment is also mapped to MITRE, NIST CSF 1.1, and NIST 800-53r5.
