Since the deployment of the first control system, engineering focus has always targeted 100% process availability with little thought to security, other than physical access. Today, a robust design must incorporate a wide range of engineering Good Practice starting with the conceptual design phase through the project end-of-life, in order to mitigate risks to public health and safety from dangers inherent in industrial controls. The International Society of Automation strives to mitigate risk by providing Good Practice standards developed from a wide brushstroke of volunteer experienced industry professionals. The ISA 99 Committee has been developing Good Practice Standards which are recognized across the globe as IEC62443 Security for Industrial Automation and Control Systems.This presentation will provide the participant a takeaway understanding of:


  • The ISA99 committee operation
  • An overview of the 14 series module work products that comprise ISA99/IEC62443
  • The key foundational components involved in developing a comprehensive Security Life Cycle
  • Potential viewpoints from various stakeholders involved in the Security Life Cycle
  • Definition and descriptions of the 4 Security Levels used in establishing  Zones and Conduits for Segmentation
  • Good Practice convergence of IT/OT/Functional Safety
