Dr. Seiichi Shin
President CSSC
CSSC is the hub of Japan’s critical infrastructure protection initiatives, providing research and development and cybersecurity testing of industrial control components and systems comprising Japan’s critical infrastructure. CSSC’s mission is to enhance ICS (industrial control system) security of critical infrastructure. CSSC functions are organized into operational areas that address R&D, international standardization, certification, human resource development, promotion and security verification of individual control systems.

CSSC has adopted the ISASecure industrial controls certification scheme as part of Japan’s critical infrastructure protection program, addressing the cybersecurity of industrial control systems. CSSC is slated to commence ISASecure EDSA certifications in early 2014, and commence subsequent ISASecure certifications as they become available.

"CSSC will soon receive independent accreditation by the Japan Accreditation Board as an ISCI-chartered lab in accordance with the ISASecure Guide 65 conformance scheme. We look forward to working with CSSC as an ISASecure certification body (CB) and as an ISCI member," said Andre Ristaino, ISCI Managing Director.
