Earlier this year, Institute for Cyber Security for Society (iCSS) member Dr Jason Nurse contributed to a government-commissioned Ipsos MORI report, titled ‘Consumer Attitudes Towards IoT security’. This report detailed the findings of an online survey of the UK public, exploring consumer purchasing behaviour of, and attitudes towards connected devices.
This report has now been cited in government plans for new legislation, The Product Security and Telecommunications Infrastructure (PSTI) Bill.
The Bill proposes developing new regulatory frameworks that will ensure consumer products, such as smart TVs, smartphones and internet connected speakers, are regulated to protect consumers from cyber harm such as loss of privacy and personal data.
