The increasing cyber threats and vulnerabilities in industrial control system (ICS) networks can affect the availability of the industrial environment and cause significant damage to manufacturing enterprises.
ISA/IEC62443 (formerly known as ISA 99) helps organizations to reduce both the risk of failure and the exposure of ICS networks to cyber threats.
Aligning with the standard is important to protect critical control systems, and indeed it has been adopted by many firms in the industrial sector.
The goal of this white paper is to provide a simple and practical guide for conducting ISA/IEC 62443 assessments using Radiflow products.
It describes how performing a risk assessment process can help protect your network by identifying critical business processes, prioritizing the risk scenarios jeopardizing these business processes, and taking effective countermeasures to mitigate these risks.
All of the steps described comply with ISA/IEC 62443 and are accompanied by examples taken from a risk assessment report performed by our ICS lab.
