Çolakoğlu Metalurji, one of the leading companies in the Turkish steel sector, continues to add new ones to its certificates in the field of Operational Technology (OT). Çolakoğlu Metalurji, which has improved the safety level in the field of automation with IEC 62443 safety certifications under the supervision of the international supervision organization TÜV Austria, became the first institution to receive this certification in the iron and steel sector in Turkey and in the world.
IEC 62443, the set of international standards addressing cybersecurity for Operational Technology (OT) in automation and control systems, covers both technical and process-related aspects of cybersecurity in standard, automation and control systems.
Today, companies in the production sector have also turned into technology companies. Production is carried out with technology. Therefore, technological risks continue to apply here as well. Cyber threats and attacks are now intensively targeting production technologies. The standards imposed by the certificate are of great importance for the production to be carried out safely without interruption.
Çolakoğlu Metalurji, which has made its production more protected against cyber threats with this certification, continues to be an example to the sector with its pioneering applications in the field of cyber security as it is in many fields.
