The need for cybersecurity is actively rising as more and more cybercrime takes place. HHLA Sky’s drone system has taken action and became the world’s first to be cyber secure protected.
HHLA Sky’s drone system received the first ever cybersecurity certification from TÜV NORD, a German technical inspection agency. This was in accordance with IEC 62443 cybersecurity industry standard.
The IEC 62443 series of standards layout requirements and processes for implementation and maintaining electronically secure industrial automation and control systems (IACS). This system was thoroughly tested, including the communication between drones and the Integrated Control Centre.
This is a first for an industry-standard Internet of Things (IoT) drone system being cybersecurity-certified. As a result, the highest level of protection against mobile robot hacking can be provided to companies and authorities.
This drone system also provided protection against the interception of video streams and/or other sensor data. It will also ensure that logistical drones can not be activated by someone other than the designated operator.
Matthias Gronstedt, Managing Director at HHLA Sky says, “Our customers often operate in critical infrastructures. An IoT strategy that embeds security and cybersecurity from the outset is just as important to them as the efficiency gains from using automated drones. Our customers will only deploy an adequately cybersecure product that supports their business continuity – and we must ensure that the level of protection remains permanently high.”
