The most important and largest global standardards group is the ISO/IEC JTC 1/SC27 - Information Technology Security Tecnniques. This acknowledges that our most urgent need in communications and information technology is security.  

ISO   (the International Organization for Standardization) and   IEC   (the International Electrotechnical Commission) form the specialized system for worldwide standardization. National Bodies that are members of ISO or IEC participate in the development of International Standards through technical committees established by the respective organization to deal with particular fields of technical activity.  

ISO and IEC technical committees collaborate in fields of mutual interest. Other international organizations, government and non-governmental, in liaison with ISO and IEC, also take part in the work.

Whitenoise Laboratories (Canada) Inc. is pleased to be an active contributor to this important forum through the Canadian National Bodies.
