ICT products have helped our society become smarter and more connected. They bring with them benefits and opportunities for consumers and businesses alike. However, there are also challenges that need to be addressed.

The EU has undertaken several initiatives to improve laws around product cybersecurity. Yet, there are still areas that need legislation, such as cybersecurity requirements for ICT products.  

This study looks into the current state of cybersecurity in ICT products, providing an analysis of the current regulatory landscape and exploring options for intervention by policy makers. It concludes that horizontal legislation would be the most cost-effective policy option, creating greater security in the EU, while enhancing business competitiveness.
