Internet of Things

Internet of Things, or IoT, describes the ecosystem of smart devices typically found around our homes. They range from intelligent door locks and security cameras right through to robot vacuum cleaners.

The low cost of smart devices and speed at which they innovate has led to a situation where most of us have a legacy, potentially insecure, IoT system in our businesses and homes.


Recently the cybersecurity industry, including the UK government, has developed a means to address the security quality of smart devices. As such, the international standard ETSI EN 303 645 has been designed to provide a cybersecurity baseline for IoT systems.

At CODA, we have a team of experts dedicated to verifying IoT devices and their associated services against the ETSI EN 303 645 standards. But we also have the capability of conducting further bespoke assessments tailored to your situation.

We break the process down into three levels, basic, substantial and high. It helps you differentiate between IoT systems that require high-security protection and devices that only require specific security mitigations.

Each level reflects mandatory requirements, recommendations and conditional aspects of the ETSI EN 303 645 standards

Research & consultancy

We also recognise that not everyone is a cybersecurity expert, so we offer custom consultancy to businesses. Whether you'd like us to evaluate your IoT incident response process, or enhance your development lifecycle to integrate security in the core of your products, CODA can help.

At the heart of our culture is a desire to stay one step ahead of malicious attackers. We do this by researching new tools and techniques to help businesses with automated code analysis and in conducting due diligence checks.

Trusting other companies to create and install IoT systems within your business can be a daunting prospect. CODA exists to help you verify the quality of these services as a means to provide your business with the assurance it requires.
