The Honeywell Phoenix, Arizona product development site achieved the ISASecure SDLA lifecycle certification.
Honeywell received the conformance certificate from exida, LLC, an ISASecure ISO 17065 accredited certification body, said officials at the ISA Security Compliance Institute (ISCI).
The certification confirms Honeywell’s named system development lifecycle (SDL), the Standard HPS Iterative Process (HIP), meets the security development lifecycle requirements of the ISASecure Security Development Lifecycle Assurance (SDLA) certification. That certification ends up based on the IEC 62443 industrial cybersecurity standards.
The ISASecure SDLA certification provides assurance to Honeywell’s customers and their procurement teams the automation giant has made a substantial and institutional commitment to cybersecurity. The certification demonstrates the certified Honeywell site uses a product development lifecycle in which cybersecurity is considered at all phases — from design to phase out.
“ISASecure provides a comprehensive framework for cybersecurity in the process control industry,” said Jason Urso, vice president of technology for HPS. “Honeywell embraces and applies ISASecure methodologies as a fundamental part of our software development lifecycle, including certification of our products to meet their high standards. Just like safety standards, cybersecurity is an essential part of an industrial control company’s strategy.”
