In the world of technology, there are paradigms of language that arise organically and artificially over time. Necessity requires a shared mode of communication for ideas and as a result, descriptors, nouns, and technical designators are created and shared. The problem arises when certain words acquire a surfeit of meaning, so much so that they paradoxically become less meaningful. There are many examples of this but for our purposes, we’re going to look at “Supply Chain Security”.
The Open Group Open Trusted Technology Forum (OTTF) is pleased to announce that it is initiating a project to update the Open Trusted Technology Provider™ Standard (O-TTPS), a standard of The Open Group, Parts 1 and 2 to Version 2.0. The O-TTPS V2.0 Update Project will seek to update Parts 1 and 2 of the O-TTPS to reflect learnings from organizations that have successfully certified products against the standards as well as the work done by government organizations in the area of supply chain security.
