Wurldtech Security Technologies and Siemens have announced that Siemens Infrastructure & Cities, Smart Grid Division, has obtained the Achilles Practices Certification by passing strict industry benchmarks for device manufacturers' security processes and practices.

Based upon the standards set by the International Instrument Users Association, Achilles Practices Certification sets the bar for cybersecurity best practices in processes, practices, development, testing, commissioning, maintenance and support throughout the product lifecycle. By meeting these stringent security requirements, device manufacturers are able to provide their customers with the assurance that corporate processes lead to the development and implementation of secure products and systems, says Wurldtech.

Through the Achilles Practices Certification, Wurldtech says Siemens further optimized its capabilities to deliver secure systems to its customers and can support a key component of their customers' corporate risk management programs.
