Investigation of Resource Constraints for the Automation of Industrial Security Risk Assessments

Marco Ehrlich¹, Georg Lukas, Henning Trsek, Jürgen Jasperneite², Christian Diedrich²
Apr 2022

The current static risk assessment processes and concepts do not match the increasing requirements with regard to flexibility within the industrial automation domain. The amount of manual tasks and needed efforts for risk assessments are too high in order to adequately cover the rising rate of system reconfigurations. Analysing the typical risk assessment processes from the IEC 62443 will show resource constraints with regard to time, bottlenecks, and the main cost drivers. If the most rewarding process steps can be identified and automated, the overall performance of risk assessments can be enhanced to keep up with the demanded flexibility.
