The European Union Cybersecurity Act creates a European-wide certification scheme for ICT products, services and processes. This will improve IoT security, as customers can have better visibility on the security of IoT solutions.

The EU Cybersecurity Act proposes three levels of security assurance:

  • Basic, which requires a conformity self-assessment;
  • Substantial, which requires a technical review against the security requirements;
  • High, which requires an efficient third-party testing of the security functionalities.

The EU Cybersecurity Act makes security a business enabler: it is anticipated that customers will require IoT products to be certified. For example, operators of essential services will require certified IoT devices to comply with their NIS Directive requirements.
