IEC 62443 is a cybersecurity standards framework tailored for IACS (Industrial Automation Control Systems), for OT (Operational Technology) industry. It was proposed by ANSI (American National Standards Institute)/ISA (American International Standards Agency) and adopted by ISO/IEC. In future, IEC 62443 standard will define essential security criteria in areas of industrial control, transportation and infrastructure developments.
