As new technology drives IoT innovation, companies must protect themselves from unanticipated vulnerabilities and new types of cyber-attack. Element helps you understand the risks, protect data, and solve cybersecurity challenges. 

What is IoT Cybersecurity Certification?

CTIA is a trade association that represents the interests of the wireless communication industry in the United States. Their IoT cybersecurity program establishes an industry baseline for device security on wireless networks, as part of an effort to build a strong, secure, connected wireless infrastructure. Element is a CTIA Approved Test Laboratory (CATL) under the CTIA Internet of Things (IoT) Cybersecurity Certification program. This means that Element has the skills, capabilities, and expertise to assess IoT devices and determine if they qualify for CTIA IoT Cybersecurity Certification.

Key Benefits of CTIA IoT Cybersecurity Certification

By establishing an IoT cybersecurity standard for the industry, this certification scheme helps to ensure that there are no "weak links" in interconnected systems of technology that malicious parties can exploit. The testing criteria for IoT devices under this program ensure that a CTIA Certification Authorized Test Lab may conduct accurate, repeatable testing that provides proof of a device's security. Earning this industry-respected certification not only makes a manufacturer’s product more attractive to consumers but is also a check against device vulnerabilities that is a logical first step to onboarding IoT applications onto wireless  networks. The program continuously updates its requirements to align with new threats, device vulnerabilities, and the latest recommendations from NIST, ETSI, the FCC, and international standard bodies.
