Cyber Trust Mark Day Agenda 2024

May 8 | The Hotel UMD, College Park, Maryland

New for 2024—presented May 8, the day after the CSfC Conference. Last year the White House introduced U.S. Cyber Trust Mark, a voluntary cybersecurity certification and labeling program that intends to elevate the level of cybersecurity across connected devices in the United States. The program aims to establish a baseline IoT device cybersecurity, strengthen security of smart devices, and protect the privacy of their users. It is one of several similar regulatory proposals introduced internationally, like the European Union’s Cyber Resilience Act. For professionals affected by these fast-developing global frameworks, Cyber Trust Mark Day will provide an overview of the program and an outlook for these developing standards, cover real world examples of product developers are preparing for rollout, and will discuss overlapping global standards and pros and cons of certification.

Part of a 3-Day Focus on Federal ICT Product Certification
