Cooperation on archiving of reported security loss incidents

Credant Technologies : 12 February, 2009  (Company News)
Credant and the Open Security Foundation collaborate on data security initiatives providing wider exposure to data loss incidents
Credant Technologies has entered a partnership agreement with the Open Security Foundation, a non-profit organisation dedicated to tracking and reporting security vulnerabilities and breaches of personal information.

The Open Security Foundation's DataLossDB, a research project that documents known and reported data loss incidents worldwide, recently announced the inclusion of the Primary Sources Archive. The Primary Sources Archive is a collection of breach notification letters sent to various jurisdictions.

"Though security breaches, hacking, identity theft and other types of data loss occur frequently, many of these incidents go unreported," said Michael Callahan, Chief Marketing Officer for Credant Technologies. "By collecting this vital information in one place, the Open Security Foundation is creating a means to educate the market on the state of data security today. The more knowledgeable companies, employees and solution providers are the better equipped we will all be to ensure critical data is protected.'

'We think that this partnership will help bring more exposure to incidents that have affected millions of people across the world,' said David Shettler, Vice President and Chief Technology Officer for Open Security Foundation. 'Credant has offered to help us in our efforts to bring these incidents to light, and we hope people and organizations will take notice and consider what they might have to do to protect their personal information from misuse or harm.'

Open Security Foundation's Primary Sources Archive and database have been gathered by staff and volunteers, and are considered to be a leading resource of information for breaches involving the loss, exposure, and theft of personal information. Currently, OSF is accumulating more Primary Source documents via the Freedom of Information Act, which involves contacting various local and state governmental agencies.
