NEW YORK – ei3, a renowned leader in industrial-grade secure remote access solutions, is leading the Cyber Resilience Act (CRA) Task Force, established by the Organization of Machine Automation and Control (OMAC). The CRA was passed by the European Union to address the alarming surge of cyberattacks on hardware and software products by creating technical requirements that businesses must comply with. This initiative is crucial for companies that aim to maintain a robust cybersecurity posture while continuing to sell their products in the EU.
The task force, launching in June 2023 with a kick-off event at ei3’s headquarters in New York, aims to deliver a concise document for both a technical and managerial audience to gain understanding of the requirements needed to achieve compliance. New participants are welcome to join and share their perspectives towards a comprehensive understanding of the CRA’s scope and compliance requirements for each product it affects, as well as insights into efficiently achieving compliance. The task force hopes to publish its initial guidance document by September 2023.
“I am thrilled that ei3 is taking the lead in OMAC’s Cyber Resilience Act Task Force. As cyber threats continue to escalate, it is imperative that manufacturing organizations prioritize cybersecurity and plan to comply with regulations that will safeguard their products and customers. I am confident that this task force will provide invaluable guidance and I encourage businesses to join us in this critical initiative,” said Spencer Cramer, Chairman of OMAC and the Founder and CEO of ei3.
Adam Griffen, ei3’s Product Manager for secure remote access, will lead the task force of OMAC members.
