The Alliance for Telecommunications Industry Solutions (ATIS) and Trusted Computing Group (TCG) have announced that they have entered into a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) for the purpose of advancing information and communications technology (ICT) cybersecurity, the companies said.
ATIS brings together the ICT organizations to advance the industry´s business imperatives. TCG enables secure computing through open standards and specifications. Under the new agreement, the two organizations will work together to create new cybersecurity specifications, guidance and best practices, with initial collaboration around network equipment security, mobile device security and related applications.
TCG currently offers a number of industry specifications, standards and guidance to using them, to protect data, devices and networks. These include guidance for using TCG standards to protect network equipment, specifications for mobile device security and using trusted computing for embedded and IoT devices.
