Schneider Electric receives an ISASecure Security Development Lifecycle Assurance (SDLA) conformance certificate from exida, LLC, an ISASecure ISO 17065 accredited certification body. The first-of-its-kind certificate applies to Schneider Electric’s Process Automation business product development centers in Foxboro, Mass., Worthing, U.K. and Hyderabad, India. It is based on international cybersecurity standards and was developed to accelerate industry-wide cybersecurity improvement for industrial automation and control systems (IACS).
“The three certified Schneider Electric sites show they use a product development lifecycle in which cybersecurity considerations in all phases are part of their culture, demonstrating an institutionalized commitment to securing industrial automation and control systems,” says Chris O’Brien, principle partner at exida, an ISO 17065 certification body that is accredited by ANSI/ANAB to offer security certification of automation products per the ISASecure IACS Cybersecurity Assurance program.
