Is your business prepared for the Product Security and Telecommunications Infrastructure (PTSI) Act? Join us for a jargon-free overview of this new legislation concerning the security of consumer-facing IoT devices and find out what support is available to your organisation.

The Act is aimed at ensuring unsecure and cyber-vulnerable IoT products cannot enter the market if they do not meet legal security standards. The UK Government has set a deadline of 29 April 2024 for companies to implement changes mandated by the legislation.

There are significant implications for businesses that designing, manufacturing, importing and selling ‘smart’ products aimed at consumers including things like:

  • doorbells
  • door locks
  • home security and alarm systems
  • smart TVs
  • toys and baby monitors
  • home hubs and voice-activated assistants
  • smart home appliances like washing machines or fridges

This session will be delivered by CENSIS, the centre of excellence for sensing, imaging and IoT technologies, and IASME, an organisation committed to helping businesses improve their cyber security, risk management and good governance through an effective and accessible range of certifications.

Together, Jason Blake, IASME’s IoT Cyber Scheme Manager and Cade Wells, CENSIS Business Development Director and cyber security lead, will look at the new Act, including how best to prepare for it via the right assessment and certification processes. The hour will cover:

  • An overview of the PSTI Act – the size, scope and significance of the legislation, what it means for your business and what you must do before the April deadline.
  • IASME’s cyber assurance certifications – the steps businesses can undertake to show they are compliant with best-practice security and UK law.
  • Q&A – put your questions to Cade and Jason.

In this event, we aim for a forum that is open, friendly and encourages conversation.


The session is one of many taking place in Cyber Scotland Week and will take place online. Please register via Eventbrite.
