ISA Security Compliance Institute Elects
March 27, 2008

The International Society for Measurement & Control (ISA) Security Compliance Institute cleared another milestone this week by completing elections for officer positions on its Governing Board. The results are:

Chairman – Johan Nye, ExxonMobil
Vice-Chairman – Ivan Susanto, Chevron
Technical Chairman – Kevin Staggs, Honeywell
Marketing Chairman – Ernie Rakaczky – Invensys

The ISA Security Compliance Institute will work to establish the ISASecure designation, which will identify and promote security standards-compliant process control products and systems. This designation and certification process will provide a single security compliance framework that will lower development and integration costs and enable more consistent system implementations.

The industrial controls security compliance program was inspired by industry leaders from a number of major control system users and manufacturers who investigated the feasibility of creating an organization to establish a set of well-engineered specifications and processes for the testing and certification of security characteristics for critical control systems products.

Conformant products will carry the ISASecure designation, enabling suppliers to substantiate claims of compliance and provide asset owners with an independently validated identification of compliant products when making procurement decisions.
