Emerson, a global technology and engineering company, has received the industry’s first ISASecure System Security Assurance Level 1 certification for cybersecurity for the newest version of its DeltaV distributed control and safety system. This is the latest step in Emerson’s commitment to help provide secure digital transformation solutions for its customers.

The certification, issued by industry consortium ISA Security Compliance Institute (ISCI), independently verifies that the DeltaV system is robust against network and system attacks. DeltaV, an advanced automation system that simplifies operational complexity and lowers project risks, provides smart control capabilities for key industries in oil and gas operations, refineries, chemical plants and life science facilities.

“The world’s leading industrial manufacturers are leveraging transformative digital technologies and methods to improve production reliability, safety and overall performance while focusing intensely on cybersecurity,” says Peter Zornio, Chief Technology Officer of Emerson Automation Solutions. “We are committed to helping our customers securely optimise their operations across the globe in an environment of increasing cyber threats.”

ISA cybersecurity certification is designed to help the industry navigate the ever-changing digital landscape and recognise products with enhanced cybersecurity measures. Level 1 covers the most critical standards of the automation industry’s leading family of standards, ANSI/ISA 62443 (IEC 62443).

“ISA developed the ISASecure cybersecurity certification to give asset owners confidence in their industrial control systems and to promote supplier best practices that protect automation systems and the operations they control,” says Andre Ristaino, ISCI’s Managing Director. “Emerson is taking a leading role that we hope other vendors will follow in further protecting personnel and processes alike from today’s increasing security threats.”
