Secure Chorus to host workshop – “Building a multi-brand ecosystem of communication apps interoperable and secure by design” – at CYBERUK 2019

SECURE CHORUS, 21ST MARCH 2019

Secure Chorus will host a workshop entitled “Building a multi-brand ecosystem of communication apps, interoperable and secure by design” on 24th April at CYBERUK 2019, Stream G “Interactive Workshops” 14.00 PM – 14.40 PM, Scottish Event Campus, Glasgow.

There are several important aspects enterprise users should consider when selecting a communication app, such as reliable data security and auditability. But there is another important aspect that remains unresolved: just as phone numbers connect enterprise users of different telephony networks, so too should they be able to connect enterprise users of different communication apps.

Following two years of collaborative work Secure Chorus, a not-for-profit membership organisation serving as a platform for government-industry cooperation in the information security field, has recently announced the completion of its first set of interoperability standards for encrypted voice calls.

The completion of this first set of interoperability standards for encrypted voice calls specifically aimed at enterprise users has created a much-needed breakthrough, setting a strong step ahead to develop interoperability standards for developers of communication apps.

This workshop will bring to the stage Secure Chorus along with like-minded cybersecurity organisations which have initiated the multi-brand ecosystem of communication apps that are interoperable and secure by design. The workshop will include a case study presenting a scenario in which enterprise users from different organisations are able to communicate with ease, reliability and security using different brands of communication apps.

Participants in the workshop will include: Elisabetta Zaccaria, Chairman, Secure Chorus; Dr Andy Lilly, CTO, Armour Communications; Ed Gillett, Sales and Campaign Delivery Director – Defence, BAE Systems Applied Intelligence, and Jon Turner, Cyber Sales Manager, Leonardo.

The Secure Chorus multi-year technology roadmap includes further development of interoperability standards, to meet enterprise user requirements.

Secure Chorus members exhibiting at CYBERUK 2019: Leonardo, BAE Systems Applied Intelligence, Armour Communications, Cryptify, Nine23 and Surevine.
