“There is a critical need to fast-track the development of global cybersecurity standards and partnering with organizations like the ISAGCA will help make it happen,” said Michael Regelski, senior vice president, R&D for Intelligent Power Management Solutions and chief technology officer, Electrical Sector at Eaton. “Industry collaboration is a core aspect of our proactive and comprehensive enterprise-wide approach to cybersecurity.”
Eaton joined the ISAGCA along with global safety science organization UL as a further step in fostering advocacy for consistent global standards and practices across industries.
“UL is a strong proponent of cybersecurity collaboration and compliance based on global industry standards and best practices, which is embodied by the ISAGCA and important family of IEC 62443 standards,” said Isabelle Noblanc, global vice president and general manager of UL’s Identity Management and Security division. “As part of the alliance, we look forward to advancing and helping secure industry 4.0.”
