Slandala approved by Kantara Initiative as assessor for digital identity frameworks’ NIST compliance
IT consultancy The Slandala Company has been approved by the Kantara Initiative as a Kantara accredited assessor, meaning it can perform assessments of digital identity frameworks for compliance to National Institute of Science and Technology (NIST) guidelines for identity.
U.S. government agencies are required to follow the NIST guidelines, and Kantara is the only organization authorized by the government to provide trust frameworks. The organization works with governments and standards bodies to apply its Trust Mark program in different jurisdictions.
Slandala is now one of the few companies able to assess a company’s digital service or solution according to a Class of Approval to grant a Trust Mark.
“Slandala’s primary efforts have been U.S. Government identity, credential and access management; typically with the assessment, compliance and operations of identity management systems,” says James Jung, owner of The Slandala Company. “Kantara assessor accreditation is important to us because clients are considering Kantara approval to earn the Trust Mark. They want to use the Kantara Trust Framework to extend their services to a wider variety of applications and users.”
The Kantara Board of Directors recently welcomed six new members, including Idemia and Microsoft.
