Industrial Security Reference Architectures

October is National Cybersecurity Awareness Month (NCSAM). During the month of October we will highlight cybersecurity tips to help make you more cyber aware.

Design Considerations for Securing Industrial Automation Networks

Rockwell Automation has collaborated with Cisco to develop Converged Plantwide Ethernet (CPwE) Architectures to provide education, design guidance, and best practices. These documents provide design considerations to deploy a holistic defense-in-depth industrial security policy to help secure networked assets. Leverage the specific design considerations to help with the successful design and deployment of an Industrial Demilitarized Zone (IDMZ). You can use Cisco Identity Services Engine within industrial automation plant-wide architectures.

Below are the CPwE reference documents that provide design considerations for ICS security.

ControlLogix 5580 Family IEC 62443-4-2 Certificate

ControlLogix® 5580 Family achieves first TÜV Rheinland IEC 62443-4-2 certification for a high-performance controller.
