Identity Management leader aims to improve Federal Government security, efficiency and interoperability
VIENNA, Va., Sept. 21, 2012 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Transglobal Secure Collaboration Participation, Inc. (TSCP) announced today that Deloitte, a TSCP collaborator, has joined TSCP as a Technology Member. Deloitte is a leading provider of Identity, Credential and Access Management (ICAM) solutions serving defense and civilian government agencies along with commercial companies such as in the Aerospace and Defense sector.
Deloitte supported the development of the FICAM Roadmap and Implementation Guidance, sponsored by the General Services Administration (GSA) and the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) and the National Strategy for Trusted Identities in Cyberspace in collaboration with a cross-agency working group. Having designed and implemented HSPD-12 compliant credentialing systems, including creating the first fully certified high assurance credentialing system and managed service, they have assisted agencies in issuing CAC/PIV credentials. Deloitte has also been recently certified by three influential Trust Frameworks - Open Identity Exchange, Kantara Initiative and Safe BioPharma – to provide security, privacy and identity assessments for their Trust Framework customers.
"We share TSCP's goals in establishing and maintaining an open standards based framework to enable secure information sharing," said Gordon Hannah, principal, federal security and privacy solutions and services, Deloitte & Touche LLP. "Given the enormous cybersecurity and physical security threats facing federal agencies and aerospace and defense companies, working with TSCP allows Deloitte to continue its work to verify the identities and entities in the digital realm, and to establish trust in the use of that identity in conducting business, to include secure information sharing."
As security threats to critical assets around the world increase and become more sophisticated, the need increases for a common robust approach to protecting information. Meeting this need is the core mission of TSCP – the consortium dedicated to identifying, prioritizing, developing and testing requirements for all aspects of information sharing – from identity management, secure email, information labeling and handling to document sharing with identity federation.
"We are pleased to welcome Deloitte to TSCP," said Keith Ward, TSCP President and CEO. "We strongly believe that with all parties working together toward a common goal, we can reduce the risk of information security breaches, accelerate secure information sharing across Defense organizations, and reduce overall program costs."
