The success of cybersecurity efforts calls for the power of collaboration
Cyberthreats are constantly evolving in order to take advantage of increased digitalization and connectivity. As governments, politicians, businesses and schools will come to rely on online connectivity and virtual communications tools they will be increasing their vulnerabilities and presenting more opportunities for cybercriminals to exploit.
Most of the consumers are left alone with evaluating security of devices, keeping security updated or changing passwords. And even businesses do not always have the know-how to evaluate security of tools they are using.
Defining minimum security requirements for connected devices is therefore a first and important step to increase cybersecurity. Considering security from the very beginning is key for digital products and business applications.
Secondly, cybersecurity should be as self-evident as safety. This can only be achieved through the definition of international standards, reliable testing and certification of products and the labelling of their security features.
