Emerson, a global technology and engineering leader, has received the industry’s first ISA-Secure System Security Assurance (SSA) Level 1 certification for cybersecurity. This certification, for the company’s newest Delta V distributed control system, is the latest step in Emerson’s commitment to help provide secure digital transformation solutions for customers.
The certification, issued by industry consortium ISA Security Compliance Institute (ISCI), independently certifies that Emerson’s DeltaV distributed control and safety systems are robust against network and system attacks. DeltaV, an advanced automation system that simplifies operational complexity and lowers project risk, provides smart control capabilities for key industries in oil and gas operations, refineries, chemical plants, power and life science facilities.
The ISA cybersecurity certification is designed to help the industry navigate the ever-changing digital landscape and recognise products with enhanced cybersecurity measures. ISA Secure SSA Level 1 certification covers the most critical standards of the automation industry’s leading family of standards, ANSI/ISA 62443 (IEC 62443).
