Consumer IoT Cybersecurity

Ensure the cybersecurity of consumer Internet of Things (IoT) devices.

Cybersecurity training, gap analysis, security reviews, assessments and testing services for consumer IoT devices.

Cybersecurity is key to the rapidly expanding consumer IoT market. Baseline security requirements for consumer IoT devices have been defined and issued in standards by numerous organizations. Recent regulations, such as the EU Cybersecurity Act, the GDPR, the California Consumer Privacy Act and state bills across the US are putting pressure on manufacturers and retailers to act.

We offer training, gap analysis, security reviews, assessments and testing services, starting in the early design phases of a product and along its complete life cycle. Our solutions help manufacturers to confirm that their solutions are adequately cybersecure, and enable both manufacturers and retailers to develop their cybersecurity capabilities over time.

Why choose consumer IoT cybersecurity from SGS?

We help you:

  • Confirm the cybersecurity of your hardware and software for mobile apps and IoT backend platforms and business processes, such as Secure Development Life Cycle (SDLC)
  • Gain cybersecurity gap analysis, security reviews, assessments and testing services, starting in the early design phases of a product and along its complete life cycle
  • Meet the requirements of cybersecurity standards and regulations for IoT device

In addition, our "IOT-Security Checked" program provides a leveled security and conformity assessment concept for consumer IoT devices accompanied by a product labeling program. The approach considers the risk exposure of the intended use and offers adequate assurance levels in line with international regulations. The program allows manufacturers and retailers to not only generate conformity proof points, but also to market their investment in cybersecurity.
