What is the process for accreditation?
Our IoT Device Assessment identifies the level of risk associated with an IoT device and its ecosystem and based on the results of the assessment, we can advise companies of the appropriate level of certification they need to achieve with one of our SBD approved certification bodies.
Once third-party testing and independent certification for a product has been achieved, the company can then apply to become SBD members, with the product receiving the SBD ‘Secure Connected Device’ accreditation.
Requirements to obtain the Secure Connected Device accreditation are:
1 IoT products and services need to have achieved the appropriate and relevant IoT standards and certifications conducted by an SBD recognised certification body.
2 The certificate needs to be assessed against all 13 provisions of the ETSI EN 303 645, which goes beyond the 3 provisions being legislated by the UK government.
3 It is required for the assessment to be undertaken by one of the certifying bodies – we do not accept self-assessed certificates.
4 IoT products or services need to be assessed on an annual basis (every 12 months).
5 If you are looking for SBD membership and accreditation for a security product or service which has an IoT element to it, it will be a requirement to not only meet traditional physical security standards, but to also meet the requirements of the ‘Secure Connected Device’ accreditation scheme.
Enquiry into SCD accreditation and SBD membership for your IoT product.
If product is in scope for the SCD scheme, an loT device assessment is conducted to determine the appropriate certification route for your product.
Based on the results, you will be given a recommended certification route that you need to achieve with one of our SBD approved certifying bodies.
Complete and achieve third party testing and independent certification with one of our SBD approved certifying bodies.
Apply for SBD membership and gain SCD accreditation for your product.
What are the benefits of the Secure Connected Device accreditation?
SBD represents a powerful, trusted police brand and the ‘Secure Connected Device’ accreditation is the only way for companies to obtain police recognition for their IoT products in the UK
Compliance with the ‘Secure Connected Device’ accreditation sends a clear message to the wider industry of the importance of IoT security
SBD member companies accredited to this new SBD standard will lead by example and be at the forefront of the IoT revolution and in doing so will help to keep their customers and the public safer from the risk of a cyber breach
Whilst the level of assurance provided by this accreditation significantly exceeds that currently recommended by government, any claim to protect against 100% of risks is not being made. You are reminded that it is your responsibility to ensure that you have the level of security commensurate for its intended use and associated security threat(s).
