The Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport, in conjunction with the National Cyber Security Centre, worked in close collaboration with a wide range of stakeholders, including government, industry partners, consumer organisations, academics and technical experts. The report’s publication, and draft Code of Practice, is intended to stimulate further dialogue with industry, academia and civil society over the coming months, with comments sought by 25 April 2018. This will ensure Government and industry activity support the review and that it collectively balances the need to create effective incentives for manufacturers, the supply chain and retailers, while continuing to encourage innovation in new technologies.
