WEBCAST TODAY: @ISOCUKEngland Webinar on #IoT Trust by Design @DCMS Consultation #getiotsmart

livestreamIn October 2018 the UK Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS) published the Code of Practice for Consumer IoT Security. In February 2019 the European Telecommunications Standards Institute (ETSI) followed up with Technical Specification 103 645 – a Global IoT cybersecurity standard.

DCMS have proposed a labeling system based on adherence to the following three minimum guidelines:
1) IoT device passwords must be unique by default.
2) IoT products must provide a public point of contact as part of a vulnerability disclosure policy.
3) manufacturers must explicitly state the minimum length of time for which the device will receive security updates through an end of life policy.

In early May 2019 the DCMS launched a consultation to gather feedback. Deadline is 5 June 2019.

On 20 May 2019, as they considered their response, the Internet Society UK England Chapter hosted a webinar where Daragh Galvin, DCMS Assistant Director, Cyber Security & Data Protection, gave an overview of the scheme, and took questions.
