Charter of Trust partners decide on important measures for more cybersecurity
The Charter-of-Trust (CoT) partners have agreed to deliver next-generation products with preset cybersecurity, following a clear “Security by Default” philosophy.
At present, there are no uniform regulations governing this issue – many products leave the factory solely dependent on safety systems that do not provide comprehensive protection. Users often have to adjust security settings afterward.
As a first step, the Charter partner companies have now defined which security features should be present and activated by default in next-generation products – ranging from strong authentication features to a unique product identity and the requirement that passwords must be changed upon first use.
