Who are IACS Service Providers?
IACS Service Providers are those Industrial Automation vendors or System integrators who procure various Instrumentation and Control System related devices such as sensors, transmitters, control valves, signal conditioners, intrinsic safety barriers, cables, junction boxes, control panels, marshaling panels as well as automation and control systems such as PLCs (Programmable Logic Controllers), DCS (Distributed Control Systems) , SCADA (Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition Systems), SIS (Safety Instrumented Systems), BMS (Burner Management Systems) and associated software, put them all together as a unique solution and then provide this to an asset owner to control and automate the plant and equipment belonging to the asset owner.
What are Security Program Requirements?
Supplying the IACS solution to the asset owner also implies that the solution is secure from a cybersecurity point of view. In order to make this happen, the IACS Service Provider has to meet the Security Program Requirements defined for making the IACS solution cyber secure. These security program requirements are given in the standard IEC 62443-2-4
