Staying Compliant With

The European Cyber Resilience ACT

As stated in European Commission website: The proposal for a regulation on cybersecurity requirements for products with digital elements, known as the Cyber Resilience Act, bolsters cybersecurity rules to ensure more secure hardware and software products.

Hardware and software products are increasingly subject to successful cyberattacks, leading to an estimated global annual cost of cybercrime of €5.5 trillion by 2021. 
Such products suffer from two major problems 
adding costs for users and the society:
While existing internal market legislation applies to certain products with digital elements, most of the hardware and software products are currently not covered by any EU legislation tackling their cybersecurity. In particular, the current EU legal framework does not address the cybersecurity of non-embedded software, even if cybersecurity attacks increasingly target vulnerabilities in these products, causing significant societal and economic costs. 

Two main objectives were identified aiming to ensure the proper functioning of the internal market:  

Four specific objectives were set out: 

ensure that manufacturers improve the security of products with digital elements since the design and development phase and throughout the whole life cycle; 

ensure a coherent cybersecurity framework, facilitating compliance for hardware and software producers; 

enhance the transparency of security properties of products with digital elements, and 

enable businesses and consumers to use products with digital elements securely.
