Seen on Consumerist:

Consumerist is part of Consumer Reports, the 80-year-old nonprofit consumer organization, and today we are launching the first phase of a collaborative, open-source effort to create a new digital consumer-protection standard that safeguards consumers’ security and privacy.

At its core, the standard is a series of criteria that manufacturers, researchers and others can use to start to evaluate the privacy and security of different products and services.


We encourage you to head over to Consumer Reports to read about the standard, its creation, and more — and if you’re ready to dive-in and contribute something — the full standard is available here.

h/t, Joe Cadillic
