The British Standards Institution has launched a compliance scheme and governance framework for IoT devices and applications, allowing them to be assessed against the UK Government’s proposed IoT code of practice – a code of practice that was announced earlier this month by the Minister for digital and the creative industries.
Its IoT compliance scheme, claims BSI, is based on global best practice for information security, and is matched to the 13 points in the IoT proposed code of practice developed by the Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS), in collaboration with the National Cyber Security Centre, manufacturers and retailers.
“Consumers and industry need to have confidence in the safety and reliability of these new devices and applications. Standards catalyse trust between innovative technologies and innovative business models. Independent verification to a government code of practice will unlock trust in IoT both today and tomorrow,” said BSI IoT development director David Mudd.
The Institution has already developed standards and guides to digital communication, pointing out that automatic IoT resource discovery specification PAS 212 came from BSI.
“BSI has a 1,300 strong IoT community of experts and organisations shaping new opportunities and creating industry-led best practice in IoT,” it said. “As technologies and business models evolve, consensus standards are developed and revised, allowing the next cycle of innovation to start from a higher level.”
