USA: the cybersecurity labeling program has a name: “U.S. cybertrust“

Washington, 7/20/2023

Products must meet high cybersecurity standards set by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST).

The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) is now seeking a national mark for the label, which will include a „shield“ logo and a QR code for verification.

The program is expected to start next year, depending on public feedback.

Annual recertification and external labs to verify equipment may also be involved.

The initiative follows President Biden’s order to introduce a label similar to the “Energy Star” for technology products.

Companies like Amazon, Best Buy, Cisco, Google, LG, Logitech and Samsung have pledged to help by improving the cybersecurity of their IoT offerings.
