UK Government Launches Voluntary Code Of Practice To Help Secure Connected Devices

It has been reported that the UK government has launched a voluntary Code of Practice to help secure internet-connected IoT devices.

Gavin Millard, VP of Threat Intelligence

“Virtually all consumers are so used to buying a device, ripping the wrapping off and not giving a moment’s thought to the cyber security implications of their new shiny toy. We can’t expect everyone to be an expert though, so a “secure by default” approach should be encouraged. Having to define a password in the start-up wizard and auto-updating of the software when bugs are found are two simple steps that could drastically reduce the cyber exposure of internet connected devices.”
