ISA/IEC 62443 cyber security standard confirms protection integral to development for ABB Electrification Smart Power

  • Independent ISA/IEC 62443 cyber security assessment confirms high level of vigilance at every step
  • Mission-critical security levels applied across all processes
  • Security and resilience integral to development and delivery of ABB’s sustainable energy systems and ABB AbilityTM Energy Manager platform

ABB Electrification Smart Power, an industry leader in digital energy management and smart electrical distribution, has adopted the ISA/IEC 62443-4-1 cyber security standard for Industrial Automation and Control Systems (IACS). ABB provides the defense-in-depth security required for solutions used in mission-critical applications and industries. The same high levels of cyber security are standard across all product life cycle processes for all Smart Power technologies, ensuring connections are secure and system availability .

Tobias Samuelsson, ABB Smart Power’s Cyber Security Officer, said: “ABB’s commitment to cyber security is integral to the resilience and reliability of our solutions. ABB technologies protect our customers’ people, facilities and operations, ensuring their essential processes run smoothly and continuously. The ISA/IEC 62433 standard confirms that cyber security is part of everything we do, at every step in every process.”


Certification for the ISA/IEC 62443-4-1 cyber security standard for Industrial Automation and Control Systems (IACS), awarded by TÜV Rheinland, affirms ABB Smart Power’s commitment to continuous improvement in the security of its customers’ power . ABB has certified nine development sites to the 62443-4-1 standard worldwide. These sites develop key technologies, including circuit breakers, motor starters, contactors and UPS devices.

ISA/IEC 62443 standards set best practices for security and provide a way for organizations to assess cyber security performance levels. Meeting this standard confirms that ABB’s response to cyber security challenges is comprehensive.

The standard sets a cyber security benchmark for industry sectors that use IACS. These include building automation, electric power generation and distribution, medical devices, transportation, and process industries such as chemicals and oil and gas.
