Cyber Security in Industrial Automation

Industrial control systems for manufacturing and process automation are increasingly implemented within internal and external company networks. Thus data transfer between differently safe systems and networks arises, increasing susceptibility for attacks and failures.

It is necessary to prevent internal and external unauthorized access in order to ensure the availability and integrity of control systems.

FS & Security

Safety-related automation solutions must be functionally safe (Functional Safety).

The objective of Security is the availability, integrity and confidentiality of data and functions.

In addition to qualifying components against Functional Safety, TÜV Rheinland offers combined product testing considering requirements regarding cyber security.

Requirements of the internationally accepted standard IEC 62443 and the series of standard EDSA ISASecureTM are considered in terms of a security life cycle as well as the
functional requirements.

Functional Safety Requirements
The products are adequately reliable and safe in accordance with a defined safety level (Safetey Integrity Level (SIL), Performance Level (PL) etc.) of the relevant standards (for example IEC 61508, EN ISO 13489-1) and are suitable to be applied in safety related applications in order to protect human beings and the environment sufficiently.

Security Requirements

Sufficient protection against manipulation and interference in accordance with the defined security level (Security Level SL 1 to SL4) during the development and for the integration phase of products.

The test mark "Functional Safety / Security" of TÜV Rheinland is applied to electronic / programmable electronic products, which are applied in safety-related applications. Manufacturers of such products additionally need to apply measures according to the requirements of the standard IEC 62443.


Apart from the Functional Safety standards the requirements of the following standards are relevant:

  • IEC 62443-3-3: Industrial communication networks
    Network and system security - Part 3-3: System security requirements and security levels.
  • IEC 62443-4-1: Industrial communication networks
    Network and system security - Part 4-1: Product development requirements.
  • IEC 62443-4-2: Industrial communication networks
    Network and system security - Part 4-2: Technical security requirements for IACS components
  • EDSA-310: ISA Security Compliance Institute
    Embedded Device Security Assurance - Requirements for embedded device robustness testing

  • EDSA-311: ISA Security Compliance Institute
    Embedded Device Security Assurance - Functional Security Assessment
  • EDSA-312: ISA Security Compliance Institute
    Embedded Device Security Assurance - Security development artifacts for embedded devices



Cyber Security in Industrial Automation

In this workshop our experts will introduce and discuss the fundamental requirements of the international standards IEC 61508 and IEC 62443 regarding the development of programmable, electronic safety systems.

The focus of this workshop lies on the contents and requirements of the standard IEC 62443 and the basic understanding of Cyber Security in industrial automation.

Further intention is to compare Functional Safety and Cyber Security aspects in the context of the interpretation of the relevant standards in an understandable way.

Questions and discussions are welcome.

  • Introduction of releant definitions related to „Security and Safety“
  • Difference between IT-Security and Cyber Security (Industrial Security)
  • Overview of international relevant Security Standards
  • Introduction of definitions regarding “Safety Level”
  • Attack Vector
  • Functional requirements to industrial components
  • Security Risk Assessment and Threat Modelling
  • Secure Software Development in a Nutshell
  • Security Module Verification

Target Group

Developers, Marketing and Sales Managers, Product Managers, Project Managers, Quality Managers, Testers.
