IT security 'kitemark' launched

Antony Savvas

The government last week launched a scheme to "kitemark"  IT security products as reliable for use in the public sector.

Launching the CCT mark, Jim Murphy, Cabinet Office minister with responsibility for e-government, said it should be adopted as a standard across the public sector. "The CCT mark will help suppliers and buyers alike, and guarantees that information assurance in public sector organisations remains robust and retains high levels of public confidence," he said.

The Cabinet Office said the CCT mark was aimed at IT managers in the public sector, but it would also provide a guide to small and medium-sized firms.
