Comply with ETSI EN 303 645 standard and ensure a degree of safety from cyber threats

The exponential increased number of internet-connected consumer products is creating a new paradigm where cybersecurity threats are emerging in numbers. Cybersecurity related issues has become one of the obstacles restricting the widespread deployment of IoT services and are main concerns for manufacturers, vendors and customers.


WHAT IS ETSI EN 303 645?

Consumer IoT cybersecurity 

The European Telecommunications Standards Institute (ETSI) released a standard ETSI EN 303 645 in 2019, which brings together widely considered good practice in security for Internet-connected consumer devices in a set of high-level outcome-focused provisions. This standard is created to support all parties involved in the development and manufacture of consumer IoT (CIoT) devices with guidance on securing their products.

ETSI EN 303 645 is one of the first cohesive global cybersecurity standards for consumer IoT; it presents an achievable, single target for manufacturers and IoT stakeholders to attain. It covers the security requirements for equipment, communications and personal data protection.  ETSI EN 303 645 also helps with consumer confidence in the security of everyday products that connect to the internet; it is an indicator that the product has met some cybersecurity standards to ensure a degree of safety from cyber threats.
