Readiness Assessment

Pillar: Digital Identity | Type: Conformity | Level: 1

Readiness Assessment in support of preparedness in potential future conformance testing. Involves examining the NIST criteria in each component, understanding approach and applicability in each case, and preparing a report with recommendations against individual criteria. Examination approach will be based on supplied documentation and interactive sessions with client delegates. Detailed hands-on solution examination is not in scope.


That's what they say ;-)

“Canada’s first IDlab is an initiative that the Digital ID and Authentication Council of Canada (DIACC) is proud to have helped establish. As the DIACC pushes significant projects forward, such as the launch of the Pan-Canadian Trust Framework, we are glad to have a partner like the IDLab by our side.”
