The Internet of Things is not only increasingly important to global business but has the potential to positively impact all aspects of our lives from the home, the workplace, the factory and the farm to our leisure and our health.

 

There is already more than one device for every person on the planet, and IoT is at the centre of Britain’s industrial strategy.

As more and more devices connect to the internet, the concerns over interoperability and security also increase. As a leader in developing collective best thinking, we have been working collaboratively with a range of stakeholders from product manufacturers to network providers and government agencies to develop assurance schemes that will be relevant today and in the future.
