Emerson Process Management’s DeltaV digital automation system and its project and engineering support services have passed annual best practice standards set by Wurldtech Security Technologies.

Manufacturers participating in Wurldtech’s Achilles Practices Certification program must re-certify every year. Annual audits help participants improve their cyber security processes and practices, development, testing, commissioning, maintenance and support throughout an automation system’s lifecycle.

Building on industry security requirements set by the International Instrument Users Association (WIB), Wurldtech created its program to proactively and independently certify that manufacturer policies and practices meet and exceed these requirements.
