Emerson Helps Users Reduce Cyber Threats

Source: www.gulfoilandgas.com 3/21/2016, Location: North America

Emerson Process Management’s DeltaV™ version 12.3 distributed control system (DCS) and its security project and engineering support services, is the first to pass the Achilles Practices Certification (APC) annual recertification of security best practices. Wurldtech, a GE Company, and a leader in cyber security solutions for operational technology environments, performed the audit in certifying mission-critical connected systems, devices, and practices. The IEC 62443-2-4 standard defines security requirements to be used by integration and maintenance service providers of industrial automation and control systems.

Because cyber threats facing its users are constantly evolving, Emerson is driven to meet APC annual recertification by updating its DeltaV DCS with system hardening and well-informed cybersecurity service offerings. By undergoing Wurldtech’s annual recertifications, Emerson can further deepen its cybersecurity processes and practices, development, testing, commissioning, maintenance, and support throughout the DeltaV lifecycle.

Supporting industry standard security requirements set by the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC), Wurldtech created its certification program to independently verify that manufacturer policies and practices meet or exceed IEC 62443-2-4 requirements.

"Wurldtech Achilles Practices Certification is the cybersecurity certification most widely requested by our customers,” said Emerson Process Management’s chief strategic officer Peter Zornio. “Achieving Achilles Practices Certification demonstrates Emerson’s commitment to help our customers meet current and emerging international cybersecurity standards and regulations. Most importantly, this assists them in protecting their process and assets.”

“Best-in-class companies are proactively taking steps to comply with security industry standards. We congratulate Emerson on achieving this benchmark,” said Nate Kube, chief technology officer and founder of Wurldtech. “By recertifying its DeltaV system and its service practices for project engineering and support, Emerson can better address cybersecurity needs through globally recognized standards.”
