|We often cover machinery
safety topics in this newsletter and, from time to time,
we carry items about cyber security. This month I want
to draw your attention to new guidelines published by
ISO, namely ISO/TR 22100-4, 'Safety of machinery -
Relationship with ISO 12100 - Part 4: Guidance to
machinery manufacturers for consideration of related
IT-security (cyber security) aspects.'
As manufacturers adopt Industry 4.0 principles and the
use of 'smart' production technologies, so the level of
connectivity increases and, consequently, the risks
relating to cyber security. ISO/TR 22100-4 will help
machine builders identify and address IT security
threats that can influence the safety of personnel in
the vicinity of a machine as well as the safety of the
production output - such as undercooked food products.
Find out more about ISO/TR 22100-4 at http://www.machinebuilding.net/n/n7649.htm.
