Intertek’s consumer product focused cyber security testing and certification program.
Cyber security is a new risk category for consumer products that emerges as soon as a product is connected directly, or indirectly to the internet. This creates risks for privacy and safety of IoT Products.
For most consumer products, there is no IoT security test performed at all, leading to products filled with basic, easy to exploit flaws. And even for products which have been tested, the constant discovery of new vulnerabilities means products passing as secure only a few weeks previously may now be vulnerable.
And with no certification marks available, consumers have no reassurance over the security of connected products.
Intertek’s Cyber Assured program helps manufacturers and brands meet this challenge by providing comprehensive, risk-appropriate, IoT security testing for connected consumer products, continuous vulnerability monitoring, a certification mark and an external website.
