Verisign is pleased to announce that we qualified for the Online Trust Alliance’s (OTA) 2017 Honor Roll for showing a commitment to best practices in security, privacy and consumer protection. This is the fifth consecutive year that Verisign has received this honor.
The OTA is an initiative within the Internet Society (ISOC) with the mission to promote best practices for online trust. Now in its ninth year, the 2017 OTA audit analyzed nearly 1,000 websites across multiple industry segments, evaluating the websites for consumer protection, security and privacy protection practices, and has been embraced by organizations worldwide as an objective benchmark report.
Some of the key changes in the 2017 methodology included normalizing all segments to a minimum of 100 sites per segment and adding a new segment that includes internet service providers (ISPs), carriers, cable companies and hosting providers.
“Verisign is pleased to be recognized on the 2017 Online Trust Audit and Honor Roll, and partner with the OTA to raise awareness about these issues as we continue our efforts to defend the internet’s security, stability and resiliency,” said Danny McPherson, senior vice president and chief security officer at Verisign.
