The ISA Security Compliance Institute is offering its ISASecure SDLA certification for organizations that develop industrial automation and control systems (IACS). The certification ensures that suppliers include cybersecurity requirements in all phases of their development and maintenance life cycle processes for IACS products.

The certification’s objective is to ensure cybersecurity is designed into IACS products from the beginning and is followed throughout all product development and support life cycle phases. SDLA is aligned to certify to ISA/IEC 62443-3-1. The program description and certification specifications are available for download in pdf format from the ISCI website at

Supplier organizations are encouraged to contact an ISASecure-accredited lab for details on how to certify their organizations’ product development and support life cycle processes.
