Xage Among Founding Members of Global Cybersecurity Alliance

By January 14, 2020 No Comments

ISAToday, we are proud to announce that Xage is a founding member of the ISA Global Cybersecurity Alliance (ISAGCA). The ISAGCA was formed to recognize and address the imperative nature of cybersecurity worldwide, demonstrate the importance of complying with cybersecurity regulations, and bring awareness to the potential widespread impact a single hack could have given the connection of our digitized devices. 

Other founding members of the Alliance include Schneider Electric, Rockwell Automation, Honeywell, Johnson Controls, Claroty, Nozomi Networks, and Dragos. Together, we’re announcing our collaborative work on a number of projects, including compliance to ISA/IEC 62443 regulation, international government cooperation guidelines, and staffing recommendations in the new era of cybersecurity regulations and enforcement. 

“Unifying and intensifying the work of experts around the world, regardless of affiliation, is a key part of ISAGCA’s mission. We are proud to collaborate with Xage, bringing our expertise together to advance the state of cybersecurity,” said ISA Executive Director Mary Ramsey. 

The ISAGCA is made up of four groups: Awareness & Outreach; Compliance & Prevention; Education & Training, and Advocacy & Adoption. Each of the four branches works in tandem, alongside founding members that include the Idaho National Laboratory, the ISA Security Compliance Institute, LOGIIC, the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, and the ISA99 WG9. 

Participation in cybersecurity groups such as ISAGCA is essential as our connected world becomes both increasingly efficient and digitized, and increasingly vulnerable. Along with technical experts from these other institutions, we at Xage hope to create a collaborative learning environment that promotes not only the cybersecurity awareness but also appropriate and adequate solutions for protecting all devices: from critical infrastructure, to individual smartphones.

The current model of enterprise security is incapable of protecting Industry 4.0 with its intermittently connected, heterogeneous devices and applications, distributed across organizations and geographies. Today’s centralized IT security paradigm needs to be replaced by cybersecurity that is distributed, flexible and adaptive.
