TÜV TRUST IT GmbH TÜV AUSTRIA group may test companies according to the standard IEC 62443.
TÜV TRUST IT went through a comprehensive qualification audit according to the ISO / IEC 17025 standard, which the company successfully completed. As a newly recognised test center and expert for information security, the TÜV TRUST IT GmbH TÜV AUSTRIA group now offers tests according to the industrial security standard IEC 62443 for companies with networked industrial plants or manufacturers of smart industrial components.
Detect and prevent network abuse at an early stage
IEC 62443 is a standard that allows networked industrial plants, industrial systems and industrial components to be tested with regard to their IT security. The increasing networking of industrial components with other IT systems in the past few years currently requires affected companies to pay more attention to the topic of industrial security in order to be able to close any security gaps that may arise. Based on the test according to IEC 62443, companies can demonstrate the use of current cyber security standards for networked industrial plants and thus certify that IT security is a high priority. The verification is carried out after passing an examination by handing over a corresponding certificate from an accredited certification body.
This approach also describes a good and important development for TÜV TRUST IT, says Managing Director Detlev Henze: “We are very pleased to be able to expand the wide TÜV AUSTRIA Group solution portfolio by this important area. Opening industrial networks offers many advantages, but also harbors dangers that make it increasingly important for industrial companies to carry out security checks in this area. As experts in this area, we feel that we have a particular duty here.
