The First International Cryptographic Module Conference
September 24-26, Gaithersburg, MD
Bringing experts together from around the world to confer on the topic of cryptographic modules.
The company was founded in January 2000 by three internationally-recognized security professionals who share a passion for IT security and were so confident that a company focused solely on providing IT security services could be successful, that they financed the new business themselves.
The atsec founders are German (Kurth), Italian-American (La Pietra), and Swedish (Persson). So, from the very first day of operation, the company has truly been multinational!
Although atsec’s business began with a single, small contract to provide IT security consulting services to Vodafone, it began to grow almost immediately, acquiring some of the world’s largest IT sector companies (including IBM, HP, Apple, and Red Hat) as its customers in less than ten years.
In addition to growing geographically (with offices in Austin, Texas, Munich, Germany, Stockholm, Sweden and Beijing, China), the company’s vision regarding the scope of IT security needs and how those needs can be met has also grown.
As from its first day atsec information security is still an independent, standards-based IT (information technology) security consulting and evaluation services company that combines a business-oriented approach to information security with in-depth technical knowledge and global experience.
