Transparency joins the Trusted Third Parties Federation

The French « Fédération des Tiers de confiance » (Trusted Third-Parties Federation) decided to set up, in 2013, a permanent incubator for building trust and Transparency was the first start-up chosen as a member in november 2013.

FNTC defines the digital trusted third party as “an actor building the trust in the digital environment. It is integrated, transparent, recognized by its peers and maintains strict confidentiality. It guarantees its interoperability with the other trusted third parties and a continuity of services beyond its own existence with the reversibility of its services. The digital trusted third party is committed to respect the existing regulation, standards and  labels. It constantly helps the technical developments and submits itself to regular transparent external audits”.

Transparency is  proud of joining the FNTC.
