Welcome to Understanding IEC 62443

 IEC 62443 is a series of standards that provide organisations across multiple sectors with a robust framework to manage and mitigate security vulnerabilities in industrial automation control systems. By segmenting an organisation’s cybersecurity risks into key zones, the standard enables significant reductions in cybersecurity risk and costs. Implementing IEC 62443 is everyone’s responsibility and must be better understood and fully embraced by power grid operators and solution providers alike in order to realise its full benefits.
 In this 60-min video we provide insights into how organisations can evaluate and align IEC 62443 concepts, frameworks and controls with an accurate representation of cybersecurity risk to their operations. We clarify the fundamental building blocks of the standard, the benefits of applying it in combination with ISO 27001 in the power grid environment, the intricacies of the certification process, and how grid operators and product suppliers can work more collaboratively to ensure its widespread application.
 When power grid cybersecurity leaders fully adopt IEC 62443 as part of their broader security management system, they work more systematically and more cost efficiently to minimise their security risks and more easily achieve their goals.

Session 2: Applying IEC 62443 in combination with ISO 27001 to fully secure IT/OT converged power grid industrial control and automation systems

•  Determining the role of IEC 62443 within the broader security management system and understanding how its is playing an increasingly critical role in the power grid environment
•  Mapping out the security vulnerabilities and needs of your specific industrial automation control environment and determining how best to apply IEC 62443 to achieve your security goals
•  Assessing the roadmap for the development of the standard and understanding how gaps such as patch management and vulnerability management are being addressed

Philip Westbroek works for Enexis, a Dutch regional grid operator with 2.7 million customers. He is a cybersecurity and datacommunications enthusiast with more than 20 years’ experience in these fields, he holds a master’s degree in information security management. During the past 15 years he was responsible for the design and realisation of a number of smart grid projects. Among these projects were a cryptoserver solution for smart meters and the Enexis Private MVNO solution. This award-winning mobile M2M datacommunications solution enables Enexis to switch from one mobile operator to another without swapping the SIMs Enexis use in their RTUs, smart meters and other M2M equipment. Philip was the lead implementer for the Enexis ISMS for the ICS environment, which was certified for ISO 27001:2017 in 2019.
