The Consumer Technology Association (CTA) has partnered with the Federal Communications Commission (FCC), the National Security Council (NSC), and the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) to unveil the U.S. Cyber Trust Mark program. This program aims to provide consumers with vital information about the cybersecurity of Internet of Things (IoT) connected products they purchase. CTA President and CEO Gary Shapiro emphasizes the importance of addressing consumer concerns about IoT security. The voluntary certification program will require manufacturers to implement specific security measures, empowering consumers and businesses with knowledge about the security of connected devices they consider purchasing. The FCC will initiate the rulemaking process to support the Cyber Trust program, and CES 2024 is expected to showcase certification-ready products. CTA will continue its collaborative efforts to assist in shaping the final rules and foster participation in this critical program. The exhibition held during the announcement highlighted various internet-connected consumer products, including TVs, washing machines, and consumer appliances.
