ISASecure, developed by the ISA Security Compliance Institute (ISCI), has a goal to accelerate industry-wide improvement of cyber security for Industrial Automation and Control Systems. It offers a common industry-recognized set of device and process requirements that drive device cybersecurity, simplifying procurement for asset owners and device assurance for equipment vendors.

ISASecure Embedded Device Security Assurance Certification (ISASecure EDSA), the first ISASecure certification, focuses on security of embedded devices and addresses device characteristics and supplier development practices for those devices. The second and third ISASecure ICS cybersecurity certifications include the System Security Assurance (SSA) and Security Development Life Cycle Assurance (SDLA).
