Accelerates education, readiness, and knowledge sharing across industrial organizations
SAN FRANCISCO, June 25, 2019 — Nozomi Networks, Inc., the leader in industrial cyber security and operational visibility, today announced it is a founding member of the International Society of Automation (ISA) new Global Cybersecurity Alliance (GCA).
The GCA will advance cybersecurity readiness and awareness in manufacturing and critical infrastructure facilities and processes. It brings end-user companies, automation and control systems vendors, IT infrastructure vendors, IT and OT security and services providers, and system integrators together to proactively address growing threats.
Leveraging the ISA/IEC 62443 standards for automation and control system cybersecurity, the Global Cybersecurity Alliance will work to increase awareness and expertise, share knowledge and information openly, and develop best practice tools to help companies navigate the entire lifecycle of cybersecurity protection. The Alliance will work closely with government agencies, regulatory bodies, and stakeholder organizations around the world.
Nozomi Networks believes real community collaboration, actionable standards and effective education are key ensuring a secure future for industrial organizations, said Nozomi Networks Co-founder and CPO Andrea Carcano. “That’s why we are helping develop secure-by-design standards as a working member of IEC, why we’ve designed our industrial cyber security solutions for easy integration across the broadest possible set of industrial and IT technologies; and why we are thrilled to help establish the Global Cybersecurity Alliance. Together we will build a secure future for the industrial infrastructure that runs the world.”
According to ISA, Nozomi Networks and the other first Founding Members of the Alliance are leading, multi-national, industrial technology providers with deep expertise in technology and applications. They will apply their experience and knowledge to help drive the Alliance’s priorities.
Annual contributions to fund initiatives are based on company revenues and are tax-deductible.
