Abstract:

The Internet of Things (IoT) represents a new chapter of how technology becomes increasingly common in our homes, making people’s lives easier and more enjoyable. As people entrust an increasing amount of personal data to online devices and services, the cyber security of these products is now as important as the physical security of our homes.

The aim of this Code of Practice is to support all parties involved in the development, manufacturing and retail of consumer IoT with a set of guidelines to ensure that products are secure by design and to make it easier for people to stay secure in a digital world. The Code of Practice brings together, in thirteen outcome-focused guidelines, what is widely considered good practice in IoT security.
