exida has established cybersecurity certification programs for both:
- engineering processes used to design and develop microcomputer based devices and software applications and
- engineering processes used to design systems of devices.
The exida Security Development Process program is based upon IEC 62443-4-1 and covers manufacturer design and development, especially software design and coding. This program is well suited to Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) product maintenance and development where full variability computer languages (C, C++, etc.) are being used.
The exida System Integrator Process program is based upon IEC 62443-2-4 and covers the cybersecurity aspects of system integration, testing, and installation. The certification covers the process itself not any specific device or system designed using that process. This program allows a system integrator to show cybersecurity competence to potential customers and results in more secure systems.
