ARERA, the Regulatory Authority for Energy, Networks, and Environment, recently implemented the European SOGL guideline mandating the installation of the Central Plant Controller (CCI) for generation plants with a rated capacity above 1 MW connected in MV, with a focus on addressing cybersecurity issues in industrial communication and automation control systems. The IEC 62443 standard provides guidelines for ensuring cybersecurity from the design stage of installed equipment in both IT and OT technology.
In September, Thytronic achieved IEC 62443-4-1:2018 certification, demonstrating its commitment to secure products in the industrial automation and control systems. The certification covers the entire product lifecycle, including safety requirements, secure design, safe implementation, verification and validation, defect management, patch management, and end-of-life.
By obtaining the IEC 62443-4-1 certification, Thytronic has demonstrated its commitment to ensuring its customers have access to machines that comply with the highest cybersecurity standards throughout the entire product lifecycle. This certification underscores Thytronic's focus on cybersecurity issues in industrial plant engineering.
