CR created the Digital Standard (a part of our Digital Lab) as an open source framework that elevates whether products respect people’s privacy and security. We believe it isn’t enough to rate products for their ease of use, safety, quality and cost, we must also incorporate the individual and collective effects of products and services on values like privacy, fairness, and user control.
