The certification will support consumer-facing logos and will be awarded to products that meet the relevant security requirements.
The DTG has been working closely with TV manufacturers from its membership and DCMS to ensure that any legislation introduced considers the needs of the TV industry. Connect Devices has been working with the National Cyber Security Centre (NCSC) since 2017 and has developed a consumer IoT security platform that automatically detects vulnerabilities in devices.
The certification scheme will support consumers by providing confidence that best-practice cyber security has been met for products displaying the certification logo. Additionally, it will provide a mechanism for IoT manufacturers to stay ahead of legislative requirements in an affordable and accessible way.
