IoT Security Self-Assessment
The global cost of cyber security is at an all-time high: in 2015, this cost was $400 billion (Machina Research), by 2019, this is forecast to reach $2 trillion (Juniper Research). This rise is being driven by the massive influx of digital services and connected solutions – some of which have not been designed to cope with the growing number and type of security threats. By 2020, the world will be composed of 26 billion connected devices – all of which will need to be reliable and secure.
The future of the IoT will depend on its security. IoT companies will need to take action now to shield their solutions from cyberattacks and safeguard customer data, if they are to protect their reputation as a provider of secure services and solutions.
The GSMA IoT Security Self-Assessment enables IoT companies to demonstrate that their products are aligned with the GSMA IoT Security Guidelines – a set of best practices developed by the telecommunications industry to share their security expertise and enable the creation of trusted, reliable and scalable IoT services.
By submitting a self-assessment, IoT companies can demonstrate the security measures they have taken to protect their products and services from cybersecurity risk, enhancing their reputation as trusted IoT service providers.
