Cyber Security for Consumer Products

Develop and launch secure products with our Consumer Product Focused Cyber Security Testing and Certification Program

Connectivity and the IoT are transforming consumer products. From connected fridges to smart door locks, interactive toys to IP connected burglar alarms, products of every type are joining the IoT. These products are simplifying daily life for consumers around the world, can creating more exciting, engaging and useful products than ever before. The benefits to consumers and society are vast, and as the revolution gathers pace, connectivity in consumer products is moving from a brand differentiator, to a consumer expectation.

However, the associated risks are significant, from privacy risks and spying, through to unauthorized entry to an individual’s home. Manufacturers and retailers face both the risk of brand damage, liability to consumers and regulatory intervention in regions such as California (SB327), or GDPR in the EU.

Intertek’s services help brands and retailers launch products intended to use in domestic environments, which help them harness the huge benefits of connectivity whilst mitigating the risks. Building on the many decades Intertek has spent working with global manufacturers to meet regulators’ requirements in markets around the world, with a focus on technical excellence and rapid service delivery, Intertek Connected World offers a range of cyber security services, including our customized, consumer product focused cyber security test and certification program, Cyber Assured.
