In April 2016 the BSI (Federal Office for Information Security) released a study about the security status of OPC UA protocol. The performed analyzes showed, that OPC UA offers a good security level. In this context it is important to understand, that the OPC UA specification can specify IT-security-measures which secure the related communication only. Threads which attack e.g. the operating system have to be secured separately. Hence the engineer needs a bouquet of balanced measures for securing his system/application. These facts lead us to the _"Challenges in Safety and Security for industrial Automation Systems" _- in this session we will describe an all-embracing engineering approach which incorporates also the system view by the application of IEC 62443
