Eurosmart Advocates Cybersecurity Trust Label for the Internet of Things

Eurosmart advocates a cybersecurity trust label or security certificate for every IoT provider, covering not only the data as such but also the network IoT providers are using. In order to meet the challenge and to best contribute to a secure IoT, also and especially as a member of the ECSO, Eurosmart has drawn on the expertise of its members and established a new committee, the IoT committee. Stefane Mouille: “The increasing number of security breaches and hacks of internet service providers show that cybersecurity is imperative to protect both private and public data. By now, the gateway for hackers is often an IoT application as these are increasingly connected to other applications and networks and often not very well protected yet.”

Eurosmart’s IoT Security Committee has several objectives

  • provide suppliers with a self-assessment methodology to evaluate the risk their devices are facing;
  • propose a portfolio of secure solutions tailored to individual risks
  • work closely with the European Commission to implement an IoT trust label that can easily and conveniently be implemented by end-users.

The first results of the Eurosmart IoT Committee will be presented at the next Trustech in Cannes.

“Smart cards, secure elements and smart devices have demonstrated over the last 25 years that they offer the right mix of security and convenience. They prevent security breaches and protect data and privacy at every step, from the authentication, to IoT applications and networks to cloud servers”, explained Stefane Mouille.
