Codenomicon, a Finland-based cyber security company, joined ISA Security Compliance Institute (ISCI) as a technical member.

The foundation of protocol testing today stems back to the work conducted in the late 1990s by researchers at VTT and the University of Oulu in Finland. Founders at Codenomicon, Ari Takanen, Rauli Kaksonen and Mikko Varpiola, took part in that foundational research in software vulnerability testing.

“Codenomicon is passionate about securing critical infrastructure and our values align with ISCI’s mission,” said Mike Ahmadi, Codenomicon’s global director of energy and ICS security. “We are enthusiastic about participating in ISCI’s programs and initiatives and proud to have our cyber security test platform included in ISASecure programs.”

Codenomicon focuses on identifying unknown software bugs. The company offers software developers a simple process to ensure security and robustness in their products.

The ISASecure program’s goal is to accelerate industry-wide improvement of cyber security for Industrial Automation and Control Systems. The program offers a common industry-recognized set of device and process requirements that drive device security, simplifying procurement for users and device assurance for equipment vendors.

ISCI started up in 2007 by thought leaders from major organizations in the industrial automation controls community seeking to improve cyber security of critical infrastructure. Founding Members include Chevron, ExxonMobil Research and Engineering, Honeywell, Invensys, Siemens, and Yokogawa. Technical members include exida, IPA-Japan, CSSC, Codenomicon and RTP Corp.
