We are pleased to announce that Ark Infosec is joining forces with Lightship Security under the Lightship banner. Ark Infosec founder Lachlan Turner will be responsible for leading and growing the security consulting and professional services practice for Lightship Security. This strategic move gives Lightship a Vancouver presence and proximity to a growing list of clients on the west coast. Lightship Security is headquartered in Ottawa and specializes in conformance automation solutions, IT security certification consulting and advisory services including Common Criteria and FIPS 140-2.
A lot of vendors are targeting their Common Criteria (CC) efforts towards Network Device Collaborative Protection Profile (NDcPP) compliance. A survey of the Australian, Canadian and US in-evaluation lists showed that there are around twelve ongoing NDcPP evaluations (Feb 2017). In comparison, there are ten ongoing Evaluation Assurance Level (EAL)2 evaluations (AU/CA only). This reflects the five-eyes policy shift towards Protection Profiles and the corresponding long sunset of EAL evaluations (at least in the five-eyes*).
Lachlan speaks with Online Education about how he started out and shares some insights on cybersecurity, Common Criteria and FIPS140-2 cryptographic module validation.

One of our partners, Lachlan Turner, speaks with Todd Kane (@toddakane) on Evolved Radio (Cyber Security w/ Lachlan Turner) to discuss the current state of cybersecurity. What hack attacks look like and how the hacker conducts the attacks. How can people and businesses protect themselves? What does the future hold for cyber security?

If you’ve been looking into CC certification, chances are you may have heard the term Collaborative Protection Profile (cPP), or at least Protection Profile (PP). This post provides a quick intro and some reference links.
The Government of Canada (GoC) recommends that CC should be included as a requirement in GoC RFPs/contracts whenever possible.
