The Secure Technology Alliance Center of Excellence (COE) was created to recognize an elite mix of member companies who, each year, reach the highest level of active participation in the Alliance by having made outstanding contributions in the form of providing valuable time, talent and resources across a wide mix of Alliance activities.
This year we are delighted to announce the following 13 member companies who comprise the 2018 class of Center of Excellence organizations:
CPI Card Group (new in 2018!)
Discover Financial Services
First Data (new in 2018!)
G+D Mobile Security
Ingenico, North America (new in 2018!)
Underwriters Laboratories (UL)
Member involvement is not measured by how large an organization is, but by the actions of the organization and the commitment of its employees when it comes to engaging in industry activities and helping to fulfill the mission of the Secure Technology Alliance.
Inclusion in this exclusive level is directly related to the following criteria members demonstrated in 2017-2018:
Industry Council recognition for Honor Roll participants or Top Contributor to one or more of our Industry Councils
Council officer position elected by peers
Number of employees with LEAP/CSCIP/CSEIP training and certification
Corporate CSCIP training and certification participation
Alliance conference and event sponsorship of $5,000 or greater in the last year
Supporting membership in affiliated organizations Digital Innovation Alliance (formerly SCALA), or the U.S. Payments Forum
Congratulations to these companies for their continued involvement in Alliance activities.
