Congress Passes IoT Cybersecurity Improvement Act of 2020

The bipartisan Internet of Things (IoT) Cybersecurity Improvement Act of 2020 has passed the House and the Senate and is headed to the President’s desk for signature.

The bill would “harness the purchasing power of the federal government and incentivize companies to finally secure the [internet-connected] devices they create and sell.”

The IoT Cybersecurity Improvement Act will require the National Institute of Standards and Technology (“NIST”) to develop minimum cybersecurity standards for internet-connected devices purchased or used by the federal government.
