Public Sector Profile of the Pan-Canadian Trust Framework (PSP PCTF)

The PCTF is a model that consists of a set of agreed-on concepts, definitions, processes, conformance criteria, and an assessment approach. The role of the PCTF is to complement existing standards and policies such as those concerned with security, privacy, and service delivery. Use of the PCTF ensures alignment, interoperability, and confidence of digital identity solutions that are intended to work across organizational, sectoral, and jurisdictional boundaries.

Readiness Assessment Level 1

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

Through a documentation review, establish understanding of organizational policies, plans, and procedures and how they are applied to business and/or solution operation. The deliverable will be a summary report containing the results of the assessment, highlighting and explaining areas of non-conformity. The report would indicate that IDLab performed a documentation review.


Readiness Assessment Level 2

Pillar: Digital Identity | Type: Conformity | Level: 2

Through a high level arm’s-length examination of technology solution and operation, demonstrate compliance with policies, plans, and procedures. The deliverable will be a detailed report containing the results of the assessment, as well as insights and recommendations on areas of non-conformity. The report would indicate that IDLab performed an arm’s length examination of the technology solution.

 

Note: Level 2 is conditional on first completing Level 1. PSP defines process groups with atomic processes that are to be mapped to the assessee’s business processes.


That's what they say ;-)
