Secure IT Foundation

Archive for January 2011

Version 2.0 of the Secure Computer Standard has been published on the Standards and Documents pages.

The Secure Computer Standard is a document published by the Secure IT Foundation, to give computer manufacturers, repairers and sellers guidance as to what steps they should be taking to provide a computer ‘secure out the box’ or a baseline for repairers to give good service. It has been simplified and reworked following over six months testing at Brads Computer Service Station in Rotterdam, The Netherlands.

The rating scheme has also been simplified following real world feedback.

As usual this is a living document, and all suggestions for improvement and error corrections are appreciated. You can contact us here.
