Yesterday, we officially launched CSA P125 Technical Committee on Operational Technology Functional Safety and Security. This group is compromised of experts who represent organizations in multiple sectors and from both Canada and the United States. Our mandate is primary ensure that both international and regional standards of interest are adopted in both countries.
As our standards will be published under Standards Council of Canada (SCC) and American National Standards Institute (ANSI) they will recognized in both of these markets. As we look forward to providing both vendors and organizations options for selecting and implementing standards and certification options that will reflect a commitment to secure products and solutions by these vendors.
As the co-Chair to this group, I am very fortunate to be in such great company and expertise. As the editor of T200, I am humbled by the expertise we will have available to make our standard reflective of industry needs and requirements. I am looking forward to building relationships with the new members in the years ahead.
As with all new journeys, this one is even more special due to many of the critical aspects of the technologies we are dealing with. Getting to discuss so many new use cases and sectors it the best part of the job. There are so many cool projects and technologies that the layman just never sees but ensuring that many aspects of society continue to operate normally. This group is going to be there to set the bar for security in OT technology.
