What to Expect From a Mandate of Industrial Security Service Standards in India?
In India, there is a demand for industrial security service standards. The Indian government has mandated that all industries must have an industrial security service standard (ISS) in place by March 31, 2019. The standard will be developed by the National Industrial Security Standards Board (NISSB). However, there are concerns that the standard might not be developed in time. As a result of this, the industry and stakeholders will have to wait for at least three years before they can start using it. This is not ideal as many companies are already moving towards automation and automation is expected to help them save costs and increase productivity.
