Consumer IoT Security Guidance

Consumer IoT has been a priority for the IoT Security Foundation since we were established in 2015 and we have worked with many stakeholders to improve the status of cybersecurity for consumers. We are pleased to continue this work with a series of guides and training webinars.

The Quick Guides and the Webinar Series build upon the ETSI EN 303 645 v2.1.1 (2020-06) specification on consumer IoT cybersecurity published in 2020. It is the first international standard of its kind and  there is already evidence of governments publishing guidance and preparing legislation based on it. This will impact the IoT producer community – designers, developers, manufacturers and other vendors. These materials focus on the top 3 cyber security provisions for consumer IoT: No Universal Default Passwords, A Means to Manage Vulnerability Reports, and Keeping Software Updated.

Quick Guides

The “Consumer IoT Security Quick Guides” help global organisations better understand and comply with new international standards, regulations and national guidance on consumer IoT security. The Quick Guides demystify specialist terminology, signpost additional information, and suggest additional ways in which to approach consumer IoT cybersecurity.

The “Webinar Series” complement the quick guides and target the same subjects in a different format. The webinars are delivered by security experts recruited from the IoTSF membership and are scheduled to run live in three separate sessions, at three different times of the day and calendar, as we aim to make them as accessible as possible to a wide audience.
