Rocio Concha, Director of Policy and Advocacy at Which?, said:
“Which? has worked with successive governments on how to tackle the flood of poorly-designed and insecure products that leave consumers vulnerable to cyber-criminals – so we are delighted to see plans for secure by design legislation included in the Queen’s Speech.
“This legislation must be introduced as soon as possible. It also needs to apply to online marketplaces and be backed by strong enforcement to ensure people can get effective redress when they purchase devices that fail to meet security standards and leave them exposed to data breaches and scams.”
