Secured by Design (SBD) operates an accreditation scheme on behalf of the UK Police Service to show that products or services have met recognised security standards. These products or services – which must be capable of deterring or preventing crime – are described as having achieved ”Police Preferred Specification”.
SBD launched a Secure Connected Device accreditation for companies providing internet-connected products this year. Working closely with certifying bodies, such as Forti5 Technologies, who assess IoT products and services against the worldwide standard, ETSI EN 303 645, SBD’s IoT Device assessment framework identifies the level of risk associated with an IoT device and its ecosystem. Once we have completed the independent certification for a product, the company can apply to become an SBD member. The product will receive the SBD Secure Connected Device accreditation, a unique and recognisable accreditation highlighting products as having achieved the relevant IoT standards and certifications.
