Jul 2021 – IoT Security Assurance Certification

We’re pleased to announce that Consult MB Ltd based in Somerset has qualified as an Internet of Things (IoT) Security Assured Certification Body.

The UK Government is planning to bring in legislation to compel IoT device manufacturers to provide basic security, and the ‘IoT Security Assured’ scheme is expected to be selected by the Government as the required standard.

IoT Security Assured certification is available in three tiers: Basic, Silver and Gold. The Basic level is aligned with proposed UK legislation and covers the top three requirements of the ETSI standard. The Silver level is aligned with the ETSI mandatory requirements and Data Protection provisions. The Gold level is aligned with the ETSI mandatory requirements as well as all the additional ETSI recommended requirements and Data Protection provisions.

The cost of the certification is the same (£500 + VAT) across the tiers. For more information please check out the IASME IoT webpage, or contact us.
