IASME has developed the IoT Cyber Baseline 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 £500 + VAT (£450 + VAT for micro-businesses).
The IoT Cyber Baseline 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.
