The Open Group Certified Trusted Technology Practitioner (Open CTTP) certification is designed to validate the existence of those qualities and skills in a professional that enable the application of effective Trusted Technology security practices, such as those described in the O-TTPS: ISO/IEC 20243.
The key skill and contribution Trusted Technology Practitioners bring to their pursuits is the ability to advise ICT product development or manufacturing teams on how to effectively mitigate technology supply chain risks including maliciously tainted and counterfeit components.
A Stepwise Path to Certification
Certification is awarded through experience-based profile assessment by recognized industry experts within their appropriate field, so no examination is required. Certification is broken down into three stages – this allows candidates to manage their certification at a pace that is most suitable to them and start to show evidence for their expertise more quickly:
- Step One - Obtain 4-5 Milestone Badges (four for Level 1, five for Level 2). Candidates submit separate Milestone Application Forms, which are then evaluated independently
- Step Two - Complete the Experience Application Form
- Step Three - Attend a board review
