A new voluntary Internet of Things (IoT) code of practice

A new voluntary Internet of Things (IoT) code of practice has been launched by the British Government to help manufacturers promote the security of Internet-connected devices such as GPS, connected home devices, smartwatches and toys. Within the next three years, there are expected to be more than 420 million Internet-connected devices in use across the UK, and poorly secured devices such as virtual assistants, fridges and home alarm systems can leave people exposed to security issues and to cyberattacks. As a result, a new Internet of Things code of practice has been developed with industry to improve the cyber security of devices, encourage innovation in new technologies and keep consumers safe. Margot James, minister for digital, said: "From smartwatches to children's toys, Internet-connected devices have positively impacted our lives but it is crucial they have the best possible security to keep us safe from invasions of privacy or cyberattacks. The UK is taking the lead globally on product safety and shifting the burden away from consumers having to secure their devices." She added, "Poorly secured devices can threaten individuals' privacy, compromise their network security, their personal safety and could be exploited as part of large-scale cyberattacks. Recent high-profile breaches putting people's data and security at risk include attacks on smart watches, CCTV cameras and children's toys. To make sure consumers are protected when using Internet-connected devices and while manufacturers implement stronger security measures, Government and NCSC have worked closely with consumer groups and industry to develop guidance on smart devices in the home. The new Code of Practice outlines thirteen guidelines that manufacturers of consumer devices should implement into their product's design to keep consumers safe. This includes secure storage of personal data, regular software updates to make sure devices are protected against emerging security threats, no default passwords and ease for users to delete their personal data off the product."
