Singapore and Germany have agreed to mutually recognize their respective smart computer product cybersecurity rating labels, with Germany the second European company to do so after Finland.

The pact stipulates that products issued with Germany's Federal Office for Information Security (BSI) label would be designated as satisfying Level 2 of the Cyber Security Agency of Singapore (CSA)'s cybersecurity labeling system.

CSA's system rates smart devices into four asterisk-demarcated levels, with each asterisk indicating an additional tier of completed testing and assessment; products rated Levels 2 through 4 must meet "enhanced" cybersecurity mandates, including device and data requirements.

The mutual CSA-BSI recognition would apply to consumer Internet of Things devices like smart TVs, smart toys, health trackers, smart lighting, and smart thermostats.

CSA said it would add more product categories under the bilateral agreement in cooperation with BSI.
