Siemens’ Smart Grid Division has received the Achilles Practices Certification offered by Wurldtech Security Technologies after passing strict industry benchmarks for cyber security threat protection.
Based on the standards established by the International Instrument Users Association, the Achilles Practices Certification sets the bar for cyber security best practices in processes, development, practices, testing, maintenance, commissioning, and support throughout a product’s lifecycle.
By obtaining the certification, companies can assure their customers that the products they offer are secure.
“By passing this strict certification process, Siemens is able to assure its customers that its processes meet and exceed best practice benchmarks for a system and solution provider in the smart grid business,” Wurldtech CTO and founder, Nate Kube, said.
“Siemens is dedicated to ensuring that our systems and networks meet current and emerging international cyber security standards and government regulations. We look forward to assuring our customers that we have taken the necessary steps to proactively and independently certify our policies and practices,” Siemens Smart Grid Division’s Robert Rosenberger explained.
