Cyber Assurance of Physical Security Systems (CAPSS)

While the National Cyber Security Centre (as UK authority) takes primacy on the protection against cyber-attacks, CPNI still works to ensure that electronic components of physical security systems are robust against cyber-attack.

CPNI undertakes product testing of items which make up physical security systems under the CAPSS (Cyber Assurance of Physical Security Systems) programme.

CAPSS testing is available to be undertaken on:

  • Any item listed in the Catalogue of Security Equipment (CSE)
  • Visitor Management Systems
  • Security Management Systems (Integration systems)

Products which have undertaken and pass the CAPSS testing will be awarded the ‘CPNI CAPSS’ trademark.
