In 2022, SBD introduced the ‘Secure Connected Device’ (SCD) accreditation scheme in-line with government legislation for companies providing Internet of Things (IoT) connected products. Without the appropriate levels of security, any internet connected device or app is at risk of providing cyber criminals with the ‘key’ in accessing and stealing personal data.
All SCD products and services will have the SCD logo displayed, giving you the reassurance that it meets the rigorous requirements of the initiative. All SCD products and services are also list below.
