About the ISA Global Cybersecurity Alliance

The ISA Global Cybersecurity Alliance (ISAGCA) is made up of 36 member companies, representing more than USD 240 billion in aggregate revenue across more than 2,400 combined worldwide locations. Our automation and cybersecurity provider members serve 31 different industries, providing automation and cybersecurity expertise to asset owners around the world.

ISAGCA is a collaborative body that comes together to tackle the toughest issues in automation cybersecurity today. Our tactics include:  

  • Collaboration
    When end-users, asset owners, vendor companies, government agencies, and other stakeholders join together in an open and transparent way, we can move industry forward faster and more effectively
  • Standardization
    Standards exist, but aren’t well-understood. Our companies need easy-to-follow guides for implementing best practices, and industry needs to increase the adoption of standards globally
  • Education
    Human error is the biggest factor in safety and security incidents around the world. Providing accessible, consistent training and education for professionals at all levels gives our companies a first line of defense
  • Protection
    Ensuring the inherent security of vendor devices and systems, and exploring ways to increase compliance with best practices, offers real risk reduction in your operations

ISAGCA’s work is led by the International Society of Automation (ISA), a nonprofit professional association of engineers, technicians, and management engaged in industrial automation. As the globally trusted provider of foundational standards-based technical resources for the automation profession, ISA is uniquely qualified to spearhead these efforts.

ISA Resources Support ISAGCA Advocacy

ISA is the home of the ISA/IEC 62443 series of standards, the world’s only consensus-based automation cybersecurity standards. ISA also offers established training and certification programs for cybersecurity and extensive advocacy and outreach capabilities based on deep knowledge and experience in the field.

ISA on-demand cybersecurity courses and certificates also offer an exclusive discount to ISAGCA member companies.
