Alliance Activities : Center of Excellence

Member Recognition Program

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 12 member companies who comprise the 2017 class of Center of Excellence organizations:

  • American Express

  • Entrust Datacard
  • G+D Mobile Security
  • Gemalto
  • Infineon Technologies
  • NXP Semiconductors
  • 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.
