Credant Sponsors Open Security Foundation

LONDON -- CREDANT Technologies, the market leader in data protection solutions, today announced it has entered a partnership agreement with the Open Security Foundation, a non-profit organization dedicated to tracking and reporting security vulnerabilities and breaches of personal information

The Open Security Foundation's DataLossDB, ( a research project that documents known and reported data loss incidents worldwide, recently announced the inclusion of the Primary Sources Archive. The Primary Sources Archive is a collection of breach notification letters sent to various jurisdictions.

Though security breaches, hacking, identity theft and other types of data loss occur frequently, many of these incidents go unreported, ” said Michael Callahan, Chief Marketing Officer for CREDANT Technologies. “By collecting this vital information in one place, the Open Security Foundation is creating a means to educate the market on the state of data security today. The more knowledgeable companies, employees and solution providers are the better equipped we will all be to ensure critical data is protected."
