Over a hundred technology, cybersecurity and consumer organizations have signed a joint statement of support for recognizing an emerging consensus around key principles for Internet of Things security, addressing passwords, vulnerability disclosure and software.

“Gathered together initially through the World Economic Forum’s platform for multistakeholder cooperation, we are a community reflecting the interests of security researchers, technology providers, and consumers, alarmed by rising threats stemming from insecure consumer IoT devices,” according to a statement spearheaded by Tech Accord, Consumers International and I Am the Cavalry and issued on Tuesday.
