Benefits and limitations of certifications and labels in the context of cyber security (Statement)

Industry and private customers need comparable information in order to assess the state of cybersecurity in products. Thus, at the EU level, approaches for the introduction of "trusted labels" are being discussed.

The ZVEI is skeptical about the introduction of labels and additional certifications for cybersecurity, as they may even weaken consumer protection. The statement sets out 13 points which each certification and label system must take into account in order to have an actual meaning. In addition, policy options are outlined through which cybersecurity and consumer protection can be strengthened EU wide.
