The UK is set to be the first country to legislate on IoT security. Read more about this significant development in a blog published by Copper Horse CEO David Rogers: Legislating for Security in Consumer IoT.

Read more about the background to the legislation on the UK Government (Department for Digital, Culture, Media & Sport) website.

We talked about this, and wider issues of cybersecurity, with the UltraSoC team and David Rogers, at our Cybersecurity Innovation Meetup which was held on Thursday (30th January) in Bristol, UK.

On the webinar David Rogers discussed historical security measures and failures of hundreds of years that can help instruct the future of security design for hardware in connected devices.
