Proposal of a scheme for IACS components cybersecurity certification published by JRC

Last week European Joint Research Centre published its Recommendations for the IACS Components Cybersecurity Certifications Scheme (ICCS). IACS (Industrial Automation & Control Systems) are used in industry including energy, transportation, manufacturing and health. The published scheme focuses on components of such systems, including PLC, RTU, SCADA, HMI and others).

ICCS is the result of European JRC ERNCIP project effort to achieve a consensus how to frame and conduct the cybersecurity certification of IACS components and achieve mutual recognition of Certificates across Europe, following the European Cybersecurity Act published on 17 April 2019.

Argevide in cooperation with Gdańsk University of Technology has been contributing to this development since 2017.
