The Government has published proposals for a new law that will help protect millions of smart device users from cyber criminals. The proposals detail the scope of the proposed legislation and the proposed new cyber security requirements for consumer smart products. It also describes what obligations could be placed upon the manufacturers and retailers of these products, and proposals for the enforcement of the requirements.
