The International Electrotechnical Commission Designates ISA/IEC 62443 as a Horizontal Standard
The International Society of Automation (ISA) and the ISA Global Cybersecurity Alliance (ISAGCA) are proud to announce that the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) has officially designated the IEC/ISA 62443 series of standards as “horizontal,” meaning that they are proven to be applicable to a wide range of different industries.
国际自动化学会（ISA）和国际自动化学会全球网络安全联盟（ISAGCA）自豪地宣布，国际电工委员会（IEC）已正式指定IEC/ISA 62443系列标准为 "横向"，这意味着它们被证明适用于广泛的不同行业。
According to the IEC decision, “The IEC Technical Committee 65 (TC 65) publishes IEC 62443 for operational technology found in industrial and critical infrastructure, including but not restricted to power utilities, water management systems, healthcare, and transport systems. These horizontal standards, also known as base standards, are technology independent. They can be applied across many technical areas.”
根据IEC的决定，"IEC技术委员会65（TC 65）发布了IEC 62443，用于工业和包括但不限于电力设施、水管理系统、医疗保健和运输系统等关键基础设施中的操作技术。这些横向标准，也被称为基础标准，是独立的技术。它们可以应用于许多技术领域。"
The ISA/IEC 62443 series of standards is the world’s only consensus-based cybersecurity standard for automation and control system applications. These standards codify hundreds of years of operational technology and IoT cybersecurity subject matter expertise. Using the ISA/IEC 62443 series of standards as a foundation, companies can focus on adopting security as part of the operations lifecycle, ensuring compliance with various aspects of the standards across their supply chains, and including cybersecurity in operational risk-management profiles.
ISA/IEC 62443系列标准是世界上唯一基于共识的自动化和控制系统应用的网络安全标准。这些标准编纂了数百年的操作技术和物联网网络安全主题知识。以ISA/IEC 62443系列标准为基础，企业可以专注于将安全作为运营生命周期的一部分，确保整个供应链符合标准的各个方面，并将网络安全纳入运营风险管理概况。
The designation of the ISA/IEC 62443 series as a horizontal standard will have many benefits to stakeholders:
