SGS, the world’s leading testing, inspection and certification company, has published an article looking at how the increasing use of smart technology is affecting cybersecurity.
In 2021, the UK found 39% of businesses had experienced a cyberattack in Q1. A July 2021 study found smart home devices were subjected to 12,000+ scanning or hacker attempts a week. As technology advances and cyberattacks become more common, manufacturers need to invest in security by design to ensure their products conform to the demands of the market.
SGS’s Consumer Compact article looks at the problem of smart technology and cybersecurity. It considers how security evaluations against recognized standards are now vital for engendering trust in components and end products.
