Smart, networked, hacked?
New devices can often now be controlled by an app on your smartphone or tablet. So these devices are mostly linked to the internet. But you often hear or read on the news that hackers can hack into your home network via insecure devices and steal valuable data and information. In the industry it’s known as industrial espionage. Another danger is the risk of hackers taking control of machines or robots. It must not happen! Hackers should not be able to steal or manipulate data either privately or commercially. As a testing and certification institution, we support manufacturers of devices to make their products more secure and when they pass testing we grant them an ‘information safety’ certificate. This gives both consumers and the industry the confidence that their use of devices will not be exploited by cyber criminals.
