FCC Implements Voluntary Cyber Labeling Program for Smart Products

The U.S. Federal Communications Commission (FCC) has approved the creation of a voluntary labeling program for connected smart devices that meet rigorous cybersecurity requirements.

The FCC’s “U.S. Cyber Trust Mark” Program will enable manufacturers of internet-enabled devices to qualify their products in accordance with rigorous cybersecurity requirements based on criteria developed by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST). Devices that meet those requirements will then be permitted to apply the Cyber Trust Mark to their products, similar to the Energy Star logo currently applied to energy-efficient appliances.

According to the FCC, the Cyber Trust Program is intended to help consumers make informed decisions regarding their purchases of internet-enabled devices, while also providing an incentive for manufacturers to meet higher cybersecurity standards.
