There’s a misconception in the popular imagination that cybersecurity is a technology-driven discipline. It is technological, of course, but cybersecurity policies are arguably just as important, if not more so, than the hardware and software elements they govern. Policies, or rules, determine how security technology is to be deployed by affected teams. A firewall may prevent unauthorized entry, for instance, but it is useless if there are no rules governing who is allowed to modify its settings.

You can’t spend your way into a strong security posture. Being secure involves integrating tools, policies, people, and budgets. Getting secure will absolutely require some expenditure of cash. How much is the right amount? The answer depends on each organization’s unique security needs. In general, though, the best practice is to assess the potential financial impact of an incident (data breach cost) and weigh it against the cost of staying secure through breach prevention. Figuring this out can be a bit challenging, but it can be done.

The IEC 62443 standard is a sprawling, highly complex collection of cybersecurity standards addressing the unique needs of Industrial Automation and Control Systems (IACSs). It covers the full spectrum of security, from risk analysis through the definition and implementation of security policies for IACSs. As with most security standards, the issues of user access control and identity management are critical to success. In particular, an organization seeking to be certified for complying with the IEC 62443 standard should address the matter of Privileged Access Management (PAM). PAM relates to administrative, or privileged, users who can set up or modify the IACS elements that are being secured through the standard.
