CM-SMM project awarded with CENTR Award 2019!

At the beginning of 2018, the CENTR Member Security Maturity Model (CM-SMM for short) was introduced as a joint initiative of SIDN, DENIC, DNS Belgium, nic.at and SWITCH under the direction of CENTR. The aim of the model is a regular, mutual evaluation of the current security status of domain registries by a so-called self-assessment scorecard. Based on common benchmarks, each registry can measure the development of its security measures, evaluate strengths and weaknesses and initiate improvements.

The CENTR Awards were presented in Brussels on 8 October 2019. Happily, the CM-SMM project - in succession to the predecessor project "Security Audits" in 2015 - was awarded the CENTR Innovation Award for the second time. "The renewed award shows us that the project is justified and definitely forward-looking. The mutual audits make it possible, on one hand, to maintain  high security standards and, on the other hand, to ensure continuous improvement". says  a delighted Richard Wein, CEO of nic.at.
