Waikato University has just hosted close to 300 global cyber security experts from more than 50 countries and 100 liaison organisations at the 28th International Organization for Standardization (ISO)/IEC JTC 1/SC 27 plenary and working group meetings, hosted by the Cloud Security Alliance on behalf of Standards New Zealand. CROW head Ryan Ko says it is a huge honour for the university and New Zealand.
"If you use a computer system, mobile device, or make electronic payments, you will surely have come across cyber security best practices guided by ISO SC27 standards. It is a great opportunity for CROW to be a part of this elite group of policy makers, and for the experts to learn about Kiwi innovation, STRATUS, and CROW. We have also achieved a great historical milestone with STRATUS, being the first MBIE funded project to be approved by SC27 to be a Category A liaison organisation to ISO. This means that STRATUS will serve as a liaison organisation alongside the likes of INTERPOL, IEEE, and several EU funded scientific projects."
