Operational Information Confidentiality
|Operational Information Confidentiality|
|IEC 62443-3-3:2013||SR 4.1|
|IEC 62443-4-2:2019||CR 4.1|
Deploy mechanisms to protect the confidentiality of information related to operational processes, facility locations, device configurations, programs, or databases that may have information that can be used to infer organizational trade-secrets, recipes, and other intellectual property (IP).
Techniques Addressed by Mitigation
|Location Identification||Protect information that may disclose locations of key physical assets.|
|Theft of Operational Information||Example mitigations could include minimizing its distribution/storage or obfuscating the information (e.g., facility coverterms, codenames). In many cases this information may be necessary to support critical engineering, maintenance, or operational functions, therefore, it may not be feasible to implement.|
