November 29, 2019 / Stilgherrian

Australia should think about implementing some sort of cybersecurity quality rating system for Internet of Things (IoT) devices, according to a range of submitters to the review of the nation's Cyber Security Strategy 2020."Perhaps something similar to [the] energy star rating on white goods," wrote the Queensland Government Cyber Security Unit in a typical comment." Customers are unable to make choices if they are not able to get the information they require." Deloitte said much the same: "Consumers often make decisions within a bounded length of time and a ratings system would give clarity to their decision making. It is important to avoid long reports that are difficult and tedious to read."
