IT users seek to certify security
IT security experts from some of the UK's most influential businesses are meeting this week to try to establish a professional body for certifying information security staff.
The group, which includes the Royal Bank of Scotland, Royal Mail and BP, will meet with The Information Security Forum, in an attempt to create an industry body which links financial and IT security needs.
David Lacey, Royal Mail director of information security, told Computing that the group hopes to establish codes of conduct and professional certification for IT security staff, to ensure compliance with growing corporate financial auditing regulations.
