atsec Joins the Trusted Technology Forum

(PresseBox) (Austin, TX, ) atsec is pleased to announce its membership in The Open Group and participation in the Trusted Technology Forum (TTF), an international consortium established to support the adoption of best practices for secure technology engineering and procurement strategies in developing a more trustworthy global technology supply chain.

We welcome the chance to work with our peers, customers, and organizations in defining, reviewing and approving industry best practices, technical standards and programs, especially since atsec has always been involved in shaping and improving both new and established national and international IT security standards.

Initially, the TTF will release a framework that systematically unifies current industry best practices for the secure and trusted development, manufacture, delivery, as well as ongoing operation of commercial software and hardware products. The TTF's long-term objective is to develop a globally-recognized program based on open, international standards. Such a program would identify trusted technology providers and products throughout the global supply chain, and enable suppliers to innovate and build technology products with integrity and customers to buy those products with confidence.

atsec maintains a business-oriented approach in our IT security work to help ensure that IT security is incorporated on all levels of the business processes. Our experience with many IT security standards allows us to integrate overlapping requirements, for example, into an Information Security Management System based on ISO/IEC 27001 and ISO 9001.

The TTF framework is scheduled to be published as a white paper at The Open Group Conference in San Diego, CA, February 5th - 7th, 2011.
