Invitation to attend a discussion about IT product security and information assurance requirements for the Canadian government

The Common Criteria Users Forum is inviting representatives from Canadian government agencies to participate in a free round-table discussion about how the information assurance requirements of Canadian government agencies can be incorporated in international standards for IT security and the evaluation of IT products.

Specifically, we are hoping to engage individuals who have a working-level understanding of government IT security standards, procurement policies, or certification and accreditation, in a discussion about how Canadian government agencies can provide input into the development of Common Criteria Protection Profiles for IT products.

Note that we will not be discussing specific requirements, it is not a commercial or sales event, and there is no fee or obligation for attending.  While this event is intended for Canada, the CCUF is looking to expand to other geographies.
