The U.K. government recently introduced new legislation to improve security standards of the consumer Internet of Things. The law, launched by the Department for Digital, Culture, Media, and Sport (DCMS), will mandate that IoT devices sold in the country must adhere to advanced security standards.

The new regulations, jointly developed by DCMS and the National Cyber Security Centre, are intended for companies that manufacture and sell consumer IoT devices.
