The FCC Implements a Voluntary Cybersecurity Labeling Program for IoT Products

Reflecting the growing concern with cybersecurity threats associated with Internet of Things (IoT) products, the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) adopted rules at its March 2024 meeting to implement a new Voluntary Cybersecurity Labeling Program. The new label— “U.S. Cyber Trust Mark”—will be affixed on wireless consumer IoT products that go through the voluntary review program to ensure that the products comply with baseline cybersecurity criteria established in the September 2022 NIST Report 8425.

In “FCC Announces Consumer IoT Cybersecurity Labeling Program,” Brian E. FinchGlenn S. Richards and Lee G. Petro take a closer look at the new program.
