Emerson Process Management’s DeltaV digital automation system and its project and engineering support services passed annual best practice standards set by Wurldtech Security Technologies.

Because of the dynamic nature of cyber security threats, manufacturers participating in Wurldtech’s Achilles Practices Certification program must re-certify every year. Annual audits help participants improve their cyber security processes and practices, development, testing, commissioning, maintenance and support throughout an automation system’s lifecycle.

Building on industry security requirements set by the International Instrument Users Association (WIB), Wurldtech created its program to proactively and independently certify manufacturer policies and practices meet and exceed these requirements.

“Wurldtech set the bar for device manufacturer cyber security,” said Emerson Process Management’s chief strategic officer Peter Zornio. “Now, with the Achilles Practices Certification they’ve expanded coverage to the entire control system and its lifecycle.”

“By certifying its DeltaV system and its service practices for project engineering and support, Emerson can better meet cyber security expectations through globally recognized standards,” said Wurldtech CTO and founder, Nate Kube.
