Intertek Launches Cybersecurity Certification Program

By

Intertek, a Total Quality Assurance provider for industries, recently announced the launch of Cyber Assured, a cybersecurity product testing and certification program, designed to deliver a certification solution for manufacturers and brands for their connected consumer products.

This new certification is designed as a cybersecurity testing and certification program, which reportedly provides continuous vulnerability monitoring for connected consumer products. In addition, the company said it enables manufacturers to assess products, improve cybersecurity, help meet emerging regulatory requirements such as California SB327, and most importantly demonstrate to consumers that the product is secure.

“Intertek has been a pioneer in cybersecurity testing, certification and assurance for more than three decades,” said Tony Walker, VP, Intertek Connected World. “The IoT revolution is bringing huge opportunities for our clients, and society in general, improving life in many ways. However, it also creates significant risks, of which many businesses have no previous experience, as well as new regulatory requirements like California IoT and EU GDPR. Bringing together Intertek’s cybersecurity expertise, other ‘connectivity’ services including cellular device testing, and our global product safety and compliance testing heritage, we are now able to offer the full suite of bespoke assurance services to allow our clients to launch successful, secure, connected products, and monitor their product’s security over its entire lifecycle.”
