Device cyber security legislation, testing and certification: Learn what this means for you

Today (16 June), the DTG will be running a webinar with DCMS, the National Cyber Security Council and Which? – dedicated to the IoT security standards that are currently being debated as part of the Product Security and Telecommunications Infrastructure Bill.

The webinar discussions will consider the legislative context, what compliance might look like and exploring how much more of a driver security is becoming for the consumer at the point of purchase.

There will also be the introduction of SafeShark – a joint venture between DTG Testing and Connect Devices – a BSI-backed assurance scheme that provides the only independent certification against the criteria set out in the legislation.

Speakers on today’s webinar include:

  • Veena Dholiwar, Cyber Security, Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport
  • Andrew Laughlin, Journalist and Principal Researcher, Which?
  • Richard Lindsay-Davies, CEO, DTG
  • Richard M, Chief Technical Officer for Economy & Society, National Cyber Security Council
  • Jonathan Marshall, SafeShark

Richard Lindsay-Davies, CEO of the DTG, commented: “Join us for an introduction to what the legislation means for you, and what actions you need to take to ensure compliance.

“Attendees will also hear how SafeShark assurance demonstrates a rigorous, objective and independent verification of a connected device’s security.

“Our proprietary testing software – Intercept – is the only pass/fail model available in the market and our UKAS-accredited lab in Central London is the UK’s only comprehensive testing and accreditation centre for digital TV devices and services.

“We work closely with manufacturers to guide them through market access and best practice requirements for internet connected products, detect specific security vulnerabilities and support ongoing product development.

“We are here to support you through the changes and help turn compliance into competitive edge, so we’d love to see you there.”

Registration is open for the webinar that starts today (Wednesday 16 June) at 12.30pm.
