IoT Security Assured Scheme

A new service from Xcina IS!

Do you want to:

  • Reassure your customers that their device has the most important security controls in place?

  • Align with upcoming UK legislation and European standards?

  • Demonstrate your commitment to best-practice security for internet connected devices?

If so, then IASME's new IoT Security Assured scheme is for you!

IASME’s new IoT Security Assured scheme  has been developed to help manufacturers improve the security of their internet-connected devices and demonstrate compliance with best-practice security. Designed specifically to be accessible to smaller organisations, micro-businesses and start-ups alongside more established manufacturers, it is also a vital tool in enabling organisations to verify the security of connected devices in their own supply chain.


The certification process requires manufacturers to answer a set of simple questions, using IASME’s online portal, about the security controls in place on a connected device and any associated services. A board member or equivalent must sign a declaration confirming the accuracy of the answers, which are then reviewed by our IASME IoT trained assessor.

Certified manufacturers will receive a certificate and a badge for use on product marketing and packaging to demonstrate the security of the device to purchasers.


Within the scheme , devices can be certified to three levels of security:

Basic : aligned with proposed UK legislation and covering the top three requirements of the ETSI standard.
Silver : aligned with the ETSI mandatory requirements and Data Protection provisions.
Gold : aligned with the ETSI mandatory requirements as well as all the additional ETSI recommended requirements and Data Protection provisions. 


The cost of the assessment is £500 + VAT (£450 + VAT for micro-businesses).
