SafeShark Launches Pilot for Cybersecurity Scheme
To help finalise the scheme processes and to provide an opportunity for manufacturers to learn more about the scheme, we are running a Pilot phase in April.
SafeShark has teamed up with world-leading certification experts BSI to provide consumer IoT cybersecurity assurance. This is in response to upcoming UK and EU legislation which will require consumer IoT products to meet standards for cybersecurity before they can access the market.
