ISA Global Cybersecurity
Alliance Position on Automation
Cybersecurity Requirements in
Public Policy

Recent discussions have surfaced in the United States and in other world governments about how to best secure automation and control systems that affect our everyday lives, especially in critical infrastructure. US President Biden issued Executive Order 14028 on May 12, 2021, addressing securing automation in critical infrastructure; and the ISA Global Cybersecurity Alliance submitted a formal response.

We hope this executive order and other measures will encourage those who support the nation’s critical infrastructure to develop and implement automation cybersecurity capabilities that will ensure the security of our way of life. This position paper describes the public policies and associated reference standards supported by the ISA Global Cybersecurity Alliance (ISAGCA.)

ISA Global Cybersecurity Alliance (ISAGCA) is a collaborative forum of member companies to advance cybersecurity awareness, education, readiness, and knowledge sharing industry-wide on a global scale. Our objectives include expanding the development and use of industry standards, knowledge-sharing in an open environment, providing best practice tools to help companies secure their infrastructure, creating education and certification programs, and advocating for cybersecurity awareness and sensible approaches with world governments and regulatory bodies.
We believe that control system cybersecurity is best achieved by referencing ISA/IEC 62443 as the common foundation for securing automation that affects our everyday lives.
