Wabtec Corporation achieved IEC 62443-4-1 certification, a benchmark for cybersecurity development lifecycle processes used on industrial automation and control systems (IACS) products.

The certification from LCIE – Bureau Veritas attests to Wabtec’s secure product development processes for customers in the rail, transit, mining, industrial, and marine industries.

“This milestone reflects our commitment to collaborating with operators within the industries we serve to strengthen cybersecurity,” said Larry Lowe, Wabtec’s chief product security officer. “After rigorous testing, we have demonstrated that our secure product development processes are in line with the highest international standards.”

The certification process evaluated Wabtec’s product development and lifecycle management practices, confirming its implementation of structured cybersecurity measures. The company’s product cybersecurity program supports well-defined benchmarks throughout the development lifecycle. This standards-driven approach enables a common cybersecurity baseline for its products.

Wabtec participates in industry and standards groups, like UNIFE and IEC Technical Committee 9/PT 63452, to support cybersecurity in digital rail innovation. This collaborative effort enables Wabtec products to meet evolving industry requirements.
