Security Forum

A trusted, collaborative environment for both the customer and supply sides of industry, government, and academia, who share a common goal of securely and pragmatically enabling business needs within organizational risk threshold and tolerance in light of achievable and cost-effective technical solutions. 
 
Who We Are & What We Do
The Open Group Security Forum provides a vendor-neutral environment where Members, who tend to be security and risk generalist practitioners, can obtain relevant knowledge, exert influence, grow professionally, and network with a world-class community of experts and peers. 

Security Forum contributors have the reputation of vigorously but cordially debating hard questions and concepts to establish next-generation risk evaluation and security technology approaches, methods, applications, and best practices.

 

The Security Forum produces general purpose intellectual property: reusable theory, principles, best practices, methods, white papers, guides, and standards to help suppliers and users of technology implement safe, secure, and cost-effective systems.
