  October 12, 2011

exida, a global supplier of functional safety products, services, and certifications has added control system cyber security certification to its Safety Automation Equipment List,  the world’s most comprehensive list of safety certified equipment. 

The new 2010 IEC 61508 safety standard now includes cyber security threat analysis.  exida is responding to the new version of the standard that now incorporates control system cyber security as a part of the functional safety assessment process. 

“Cyber security has become an important issue,” said exida Managing Director Dr. William Goble. “The controller’s ability to maintain control and safety, even during an attack is the key.  A controller with exida cyber security certification will have fewer false trips and better maintain safety.” 

exida maintains the list of process industry equipment as a service to those selecting equipment for safety instrumented systems that meet IEC 61511. Only equipment that is actively marketed and available for sale by the manufacturer will be listed.
