The Cost of Inaction Will Be Huge

The impact of an insecure device ripples through a company. Not only reputational damages but also financial costs including investigations, restoration of hacked data and systems, loss of intellectual property, lost productivity, and many other expenses.

Governments Are Waking Up

There is no denying that governments are starting to wake up to the security threats to connected devices and investing in creating new standards and law. If you don’t meet these standards in advance, you could find yourself unable to sell in your chosen markets. PSA Certified offers adherence to government documents that are gaining traction in IoT, giving you a fast route to adherence.
