David Martin, Head of International Assurance, CESG
“ICCC is the once in a year opportunity for the Common Criteria agenda to be set, experts to interact, trends to be understood and shared challenges to be tackled.”
This year’s International Common Criteria Conference (ICCC) will be held in Windsor, 20-minutes West of London on 22 – 24 September 2015.
The ICCC is the vital annual conference for the world’s Common Criteria community. It provides the essential forum for dialogue between governments and private sector organisations.
This event will bring together 450 international experts in the security of ICT systems. Delegates will review current threats and consider emerging issues as they strive to achieve a consensus on how Common Criteria must continue to evolve.
Common Criteria (CC) is currently the major internationally recognised product assurance evaluation and certification scheme for hardware, firmware and software. It allows for mutual recognition by 26 countries of the certifications provided by authorised independent laboratories through the Common Criteria Recognition Arrangement.
This vital conference brings together specialists in the specification, development, evaluation and certification of IT security. Delegates include Certification Bodies, Evaluation Laboratories, Researchers, Evaluators, Policy Makers, Product Developers, Sellers and Buyers.
This will be an interesting and engaging event that will combine vital keynote addresses that set the agenda for Common Criteria with relaxed networking, allowing this community to reinforce contacts.
The 16th ICCC will be hosted by CESG, the UK Technical Authority for Information Assurance. The content and organisation of the conference is coordinated with members of the Common Criteria Recognition arrangement and representatives of the Common Criteria User Forum.
Beaumont Estate, Old Windsor, Berkshire, England
Located in Old Windsor, West of London, Beaumont Estate is a mansion set in 40 acres of sprawling grounds. Although this unique venue dates back to 14th century, it provides state of the art conference facilities and a delightful dinner hall with a finely painted barrel-vaulted ceiling. With a purpose-designed conference centre, this will be an efficient venue to hear keynote speeches from government and industry leaders. It will also be a place to relax, network and engage in smaller scale dialogue with delegates.
