Industrial Automation and Control Systems (IACS)

Cybersecure implementation and operation of IACS and OT systems.

Training, assessment and certification to ensure the cybersecurity of Industrial Automation and Control Systems (IACS) and Operational Technology (OT) systems.

IACS and OT networks are critical infrastructure, vital for manufacturers and at a national level. Through the application and certification of security for industrial control and automation systems, we ensure efficient operations. Our approach to IACS is through internationally accredited standards, such as IEC 62443, or IEC 62351 (for the energy sector), using renowned certification schemes and potent security methodology.
