Effective ICS Cybersecurity Using the IEC 62443 Standard

It's important to conduct risk and security assessments, followed by mitigation plans to enhance industrial control system (ICS) security. This will help to narrow down the cybersecurity problem to a list of findings, which only represent a part of the overall ICS security posture. Adopting various security controls, such as prevention, monitoring, detection, and response to incidents is also crucial. The ICS should be segmented into security zones based on the identified cybersecurity requirements and protection levels.
