Effective immediately, TÜV SÜD Product Service is embarking on a collaboration with security consulting company Limes Security. The partners’ objective is to offer maximum security in product development and system integration for industrial environments and critical infrastructures. In the field of industrial IT security, Limes Security focuses on consulting and testing services, while the services provided by TÜV SÜD include assessments and certifications according to international security standards. Together, the two companies offer a modular training and education programme tailored to the needs of industrial IT security.
“We are very pleased about this collaboration, in which the activities and expertise of the two companies ideally complement each other”, comments Dr Kai Wollenweber, Program Manager Industrial IT Security, TÜV SÜD Product Service. “Our partnership with TÜV SÜD not only enables us to provide our special expertise in the establishment of industrial security programs to a global market with greater speed, but also to align our projects even more closely with certification requirements, which are increasingly in demand in the industrial segment”, says Prof. Thomas Brandstetter, Managing Director of Limes Security GmbH, in explanation of the cooperation.
The joint activities of TÜV SÜD and Limes Security pursue an integrated security approach. From product design to system integration and operation, the collaboration addresses industrial IT security topics which are geared to relevant industry standards, such as IEC 62443 or ISO 27001 and which take into account current and national market requirements as well as cutting-edge threats and forms of attack. The partners’ activities focus on security within the product lifecycle, system integration and implemented security functions. This is of particular relevance for all product and component manufacturers, plant engineers and system integrators in the field of industrial automation, process automation, smart grids and oil and gas. TÜV SÜD and Limes Security also offer targeted support in developing the necessary skills and competencies through training and education.
