IOT Cyber Assurance level 1

The IASME IoT Cyber Assurance scheme certifies internet connected devices against the most important security controls and demonstrates commitment to best practice security.

The IoT Cyber Assurance scheme is aligned with all of the provisions in the ETSI EN 303 645 standard and UK legislation.  It is also mapped to the IoTSF Security Compliance Framework.Certification guards against the exploitation of common IoT cyber security vulnerabilities such as weak passwords, legacy software and insecure communications.

Level One consists of a verified-assessment, reviewed by an independent expert.

IASME IoT Cyber Assurance

Level One (Verified-Assessed) Certification

Reassure your customers that their device has the most important 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 security for internet connected devices

IASME has developed the IoT Cyber Assurance scheme to provide an essential opportunity for manufacturers to improve the security of their internet-connected devices and to show they are compliant with best-practice security and UK law. The scheme has been designed specifically to be accessible to smaller organisations, micro-businesses and start-ups alongside more established manufacturers.

The scheme is a vital tool in enabling organisations to verify the security of connected devices in their own supply chain.

The cost of the assessment is $680£525 + VAT€620 ($620£475 + VAT€560 for micro-businesses). 

The IoT Cyber Assurance certification process requires manufacturers to answer a set of simple questions, using IASME’s online portal, about the 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 this assessment are then reviewed by one of IASME’s IoT trained Assessors.

If the manufacturer is successful, a certificate and a badge is provided to be placed on product marketing and packaging to demonstrate the security of the device to purchasers.
