ISA/IEC 62443 compliance doesn’t have to be complicated.
Learn how Privileged Access Management makes the compliance process easy.
What is ISA | IEC 62443?
The ISA (International Society of Automation) developed the 62443 series of standards, later adopted by the IEC (International Electrotechnical Commission). These standards establish a framework to address vulnerabilities within Industrial Automation and Control Systems (IACS) connected with Industry 4.0 and critical infrastructure.
Accessing and managing industrial systems often requires privileged or administrative credentials, granting users the ability to modify settings within the environment. If these credentials fall into the wrong hands, it can lead to the theft of crucial data or even irreversible damage to the industrial systems.
The elements outlined in the ISA 62443 standards introduce methods and techniques to protect industrial systems, focusing on implementing security policies associated with IACS. These policies provide the proper management of user credentials—both internal and third-party—and involve regulating permissions and monitoring remote access to these systems.
Senhasegura's session recording feature securely captures and stores maintenance actions. This enhances technical knowledge retention, empowering suppliers of products related to IACS with greater independence.
This approach overcomes access management challenges within critical industrial systems, ensuring alignment with ISA/IEC 62443 standards. senhasegura facilitates a secure and streamlined authorization and monitoring process for all privileged IACS users, based on the controls required by the ISA 62443 series of standards.
Here are some ways the senhasegura solution helps your organization comply with ISA/IEC 62443:
senhasegura, in partnership with Baumier – authorized distributor in Brazil of communication products for industrial networks – allows the implementation of a complete solution for the adequate protection of Industry 4.0 and Critical Infrastructure systems.
senhasegura is a supporting member of the Global Cybersecurity Alliance (https://isaautomation.isa.org/cybersecurity-alliance/). The Initiatives include expanding the development and use of industry standards, creating education and certification programs , advocacy for cybersecurity awareness and sensible approaches with the world’s governments and regulators.
Centralized access management ensures maximum protection and control over generic and high-privilege credentials. It offers secure storage, segregates access, and provides full traceability of usage.
When configuring access groups, you can define administrator users who are allowed physical access passwords, plus user groups who can use the solution's remote access for accessing target devices or systems.
Every case can incorporate multi-level approval workflows and include reasons provided by the requesting user for added transparency.
