Consumer Reports has completely screwed up this up aready
Consumer Report's approach to this massively complex problem has been a kluster-kludge from the get-go. Their first assumption (that all software systems written for Iot devices will be new) speaks to just how naive and ill-informed they really are.

An in-depth discussion (very well worth the read fro anyone interested in cyber-security) of the issues with Consumer Reports entry into ratings is availablwe for free at the Ceritude Digital webste. From their main page on that site, go to the footer links at the bottom of the page and select the link labeled "Blog (from our CTO)". Library". Near the top of the blog is an article entitled "Should Consumer Reports Set Cybersecurity Standards?"

Alternatively, you can go to F. Scott Deaver's LinkedIn page and look for the "Should Consumer Reports Set Cybersecurity Standards?" topic among his other articles.

This is the start of a trend of cyber-rating
Products, companies, and software will soon have a slew of "ratings" associated with them. Like the motion picture association of America's familiar ratings (G, PG, R), these will help consumers to understand what they're signing themselves up for. Unlike the MPAA ratings, there isn't going to be a single authority for ratings and there is going to be substantial vendor influence on what the ratings actually measure.
