Certify Your IoT Product

Reassure your customers that their device has the most important cyber security controls in place

Align your connected devices with UK & EU legislation and with internationally recognised standards in IoT security

Demonstrate your commitment to best practice cyber security for internet connected devices

IASME is working in partnership with the Police Crime Prevention Initiative, Secured By Design. Secured by Design (SBD) operates an accreditation scheme on behalf of the UK Police Service to show that products or services have met recognised security standards.

Secured by Design recently launched the Secure Connected Device accreditation for manufacturers of innovative connected security products such as alarm systems and video products. The IASME IoT Cyber Assurance Level Two scheme is one of the approved ways that manufacturers can confirm their products have the highest level of cyber security.

What is IASME IoT Cyber?

Until recently, cyber security has been notably lacking in many consumer connected devices, putting users at risk from online threats. But now, thanks to new UK legislation and rising customer awareness, all consumer connectable products sold in the UK, no matter where they are made, must comply with basic IoT security.

IASME IoT Cyber certifies internet connected devices against the most important cyber security controls. A certification badge which can be displayed on the product packaging allows purchasers to verify the security of the device.

Best Practice Cyber Security

Legal and Regulatory Compliance

Increased Customer Trust

Accessible to Everyone

The IASME IoT Cyber scheme provides manufacturers with a framework to improve the cyber security of internet-connected devices in their supply chain.

The scheme aligns with UK legislation, (Product Security and Telecommunications Infrastructure Act 2022) and the requirements of the leading global standard in IoT security, ETSI EN 303 645.

Compliant products receive a certification badge which can be displayed on product packaging and marketing to allow purchasers to verify the security of the device.

The IASME IoT Cyber Scheme has been designed to be affordable and achievable by even the smallest of manufacturers which enables small, innovative companies to be part of the market.

Follow our step-by-step guide below to find out which level is best suited to your device.

Step 1. What certification grade do I need?

Baseline or Assurance?

The annually renewable scheme allows manufacturers to certify connected devices at two different grades of certification.

  • Certification Grade
  • Certification Level
  • Organisation Size

IoT Cyber Baseline

This certification provides manufacturers with a framework to improve the cyber security of internet-connected devices in their supply chain and to show compliance with best-practice cyber security and UK law. The certification is designed to be accessible to smaller organisations, micro-businesses, start-ups as well as larger, more established manufacturers.

Benefits include:

IoT Cyber Assurance

IoT Cyber Assurance is aligned with UK legislation and all of the 13 provisions in the ETSI EN 303 645 standard, extending beyond just the top three required for UK law.

IoT Cyber Assurance Level Two certification is one of the approved ways that makes up an essential part of the framework for Secure by Design's Secure Connected Device accreditation.

 

Benefits include:

  • Aligned with UK law and covers all 13 of the provisions in the ETSI standard.
  • Complies to the IoTSF Security Compliance Framework.
  • Certification at this higher level demonstrates the device has more protection for personal data and guards against sustained attacks.

Step 2. Which certification level do I need?

Baseline Verified Assessment or Audit?

The annually renewable scheme allows manufacturers to certify connected devices at two different levels of certification.

  • Certification Grade
  • Certification Level
  • Organisation Size

Level One Verified Assessment

Level One consists of a verified assessment, reviewed by an independent expert. The Level One verified assessment certification process requires manufacturers to answer a set of simple questions, using IASME’s online portal, about the cyber security controls in place on a connected device and any associated services. A board member or equivalent must sign a declaration to confirm that all the answers are accurate. The answers to the assessment are then reviewed by one of IASME’s IoT trained Assessors. If the manufacturer is successful, a certificate and a badge is awarded. The badge can be placed on product marketing and packaging to demonstrate the security of the device to purchasers.

Level Two Audit

Level Two includes an audit via third-party compliance testing for greater assurance. The Level Two audit includes a hands-on audit of the device, a review of the supporting documentation provided by the IoT device manufacturer and an interview to verify the answers provided to the verified assessment questions. The audit is managed by an Assessor from one of IASME’s network of Certification Bodies. The scope of the certification includes the IoT device and any associated hub, app and cloud service the device relies upon to operate. Organisations must attain verified assessment before applying for the audit.

The auditing is managed by an Assessor from one of IASME’s network of Certification Bodies. The scope of the certification includes the IoT device and any associated hub, app and cloud service the device relies upon to operate. Organisations must attain verified assessment before applying for the audit.
