atsec is celebrating!!

It is 18 years since atsec was founded on January 11th, 2000. 

Since then atsec has made a very significant contribution to information security. As one of the only truly independent labs atsec is still  self-funded, owned by professionals in the security assurance business and a key player in the technologies and geographies in which we operate. We have hundreds of successful testing and evaluation projects, founded IT security conferences, contributed with a great many IT security consultancy projects, become one of the foremost PCI assessors in the China and Asia region, and had a lot of fun along the way.

Not many people know that the name "atsec" is related to the Italian word for basket, ("cesta"). This underlines that we have a great wealth of security-related expertise and diversity within atsec.

Thanks are due to all the atsec customers, schemes and programs, accreditors, atsec staff and alumni who have helped atsec reach this milestone birthday.


  1. And we wish ATSEC a long and bright life. Thank you for being there to all.

    I think there needs to be a "key" to the basket picture so that we know who's who!

    Congratulations on 18 years!
