    Cyber Security and the Internet of Things

    Research firm Statista estimates that the total number devices connected through the Internet of Things (IoT) will surpass 21 billion worldwide by 2025. But the growing IoT footprint has also become a prime target for cyber attacks by hackers and criminals.

    Fortunately, there are several internationally accepted standards to help manufacturers secure their devices.

    • ETSI/EN 303 645 — This European standard details outcome-focused best practices for the security of Internet-connected consumer devices to provide flexible security measures.
    • IEC 62443 — This series of standards focuses on the cyber security of various aspects of industrial communications networks, including industrial automation and control systems and components, as well as requirements for IACS service providers.

    How Nemko Can Help

    Nemko can test connected systems and devices according to the requirements and best practices detailed in ETSI/EN 303 645 and has specifically developed two testing and approval services for unique cyber security situations.

    Cyber Security Product Attestation

    This service provides a trusted, third-party cyber security verification method for manufacturers of custom products and components, as well as those who do not require certification. (For detailed product description, please contact Nemko)

    Cyber Security Product Certification

    Beyond testing according to ETSI/EN 303 645, this service includes an initial audit of the quality assurance system, as well as annual surveillance audits to ensure ongoing compliance. The huge benefit of this arrangement is that it allows the manufacturer to make certain updates to the product whilst maintaining the validity of the certificate. This is particularly useful for IoT products which are frequently updated. (For detailed product description, please contact Nemko)

    Based on requests from customers, we have developed three services that can help you get a good head start on the new cyber security requirements.

    Gap analysis report
    We do a GAP analysis of your product against the standard and provide a list the shortcomings and how you should address these. Such gap analysis may be combined with below trainings and workshops.


    At Nemko, we have identified the most relevant standards and requirements to meet the regulations. We can take you on a “guided tour” through the standard(s) including examples of solutions.


    We apply each clause of the standard to your specific product. Workshops are a very concrete and useful way to assess incompliance as they are based on one of your existing products.

    Nemko Cyber Mark
    The Nemko cyber secure mark verifies, in a simple and visible way for the buyers, the compliance of the product to the cyber security IoT standard ETSI/EN 303 645.


    Common Criteria scheme

    In addition to these services, Nemko can also provide testing and certification services according to the Common Criteria Scheme
