"The scheme will initially see gateways provided by ISPs and smart hubs rated with a four-star assessment of their security."

Once the same approach extends to all kit (not just that supplied - and presumably ranked - by ISPs) we might be getting somewhere. Four years ago in a response to the US Commission on Enhancing National Cybersecurity we recommended this, citing the success of the BSI kite mark in raising product quality standards. That's a just a voluntary scheme but it soon became so influential that you couldn't sell relevant kit without it.
