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

PBUS 10 14 ISA 4th CSE 400

August 10, 2021

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.

ISA hopes 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.)
