Other Consortia

Over many years now, we have developed working relationships with other industry groups and consortia who work on information security solutions. These liaisons wax and wane according to the priority and level of involvement of particular development work. For convenience and visibility, we maintain a list of information security consortia. It is not intended to be an exclusive list, but if you notice a significant omission or expired inclusion, please contact us to tell us to update it.

Information sources

The remainder of this page gives an extensive list of useful links to Web sites maintained by other organizations who are active in information security. The range of information accessible through these links is enormous, reflecting the number of organizations and consortia involved and the huge variety of information available.

To assist you in find what you are seeking, the following groupings are used:

Other Information Sourcing Sites

The Information Society Technologies (IST) Web pages give a wealth of links to useful information sources. In particular, its Information Security Standards Web page lists link to Active Forums and to Security Standards by market sector.

The Computer and Communication Web page gives a more general overview of links to current standards activities and who is doing them, across all areas of Information Technology.
