  4. 4. The Internet of Things increasingly touches all aspects of our lives, but mostly it consists of black boxes. We need to make sure that we can trust them. Consumers and citizens have little insight into how any one connected product works, what it even might be capable of, or if the company employs good, responsible data practices. This is not an oversight on the consumers' side: We lack the tools to find out. Why do we need a trustmark? Image: Pixabay CC0

  6. 6. 4 questions that we should be able to answer for every connected device. But for connected products, these are very hard questions to answer. A simple litmus test Source: The Waving Cat (CC BY) Does it do anything I wouldn’t expect? Is the organization trustworthy? Is it made using trustworthy processes? Does it do what I expect it to do?
  7. 7. The Trustable Technology Mark empowers consumers to make informed decisions & 
 enables companies to prove their connected products are trustworthy.
  8. 8. The trustmark is aspirational and aims to raise the bar at the top of the pyramid. This work is driven by values. This needs to exist in order to get to a better IoT, and a better society. We believe that good ethics are good for business. Our Goal A trustmark to aim higher. - find out more on medium.com Trustable Tech Mark Baseline certification Great Good Bad
  9. 9. Those companies who already build trustworthy products have already done the “hard” work. For them, documenting their work is easy and quick. However, if a company just isn’t there yet, they need to go back and put in more effort. Characteristics Peter Bihr (CC-BY-SA) Hard to earn Valuable/Meaningful Easy to apply The trustmark should be
  10. 10. How does it work? Self- assessment Company fills in the self- assessment tool, an online application form that consists of yes/no questions plus explanations. Should the company find it hard to answer questions, they have identified a weakness. Application review Trustmark issued If the application passes, the results are fully published online. If contested questions cannot be resolved, the trustmark is not issued and the results will not be published. 1 2 3 There’s always a human in the loop. Our experts review the application. If necessary, they follow up for clarification. The carrot is public proof that a product is best-in- class: a market incentive. The stick is in the public accountability once the company decides to use the trustmark and the self-assessment results are published in full.
  11. 11. The trustmark evaluates products for 5 dimensions that we identified as most crucial for consumers Dimensions *See A Trustmark for IoT (2017), p. 56 Privacy & Data Practices
 How respectful of privacy? Is it designed using state of the art data practices? Transparency
 Is it obvious to users what the device does and how data might be used? Security
 Is it designed and built using state of the art security practices and safeguards? Stability
 How robust? How long a lifecycle to expect? Openness
 How open are device and manufacturer? Is open data used or generated?

  14. 14. What does a trustmark mean legally? THE CERTIFICATION MARK, AS USED BY PERSONS AUTHORIZED BY CERTIFIER, CERTIFIES THAT, IN THE OPINION OF APPLICANT'S RATING OR APPEALS BOARDS, MOST AMERICAN PARENTS WILL CONSIDER THE MOTION PICTURE INAPPROPRIATE FOR VIEWING BY ANYONE UNDER THE AGE OF 18, BY REASON OF ITS DEPICTION OR TREATMENT OF VIOLENCE OR SEX OR ABERRATIONAL BEHAVIOR OR DRUG ABUSE, OR A COMBINATION OF THESE OR OTHER ELEMENTS. The certification mark, as used by persons authorized by the certifier, certifies that the goods and services provided are in compliance with Kosher dietary food preparation and handling standards. The Code of Jewish Law, as codified by Rabbi Yosef Karo with the glosses of Moses Isserles (The Rema) and other authorities, is the standard by which the certifier certifies that the goods and services are in compliance with Kosher dietary food preparation and handling standards.
