Exemplary Contributions in the field of trustworthy use of Identity and
Personal Data is:
Richard G Wilsher
Richard is CEO of Zygma Inc a Kantara Certified Assessor. Zygma offers a
range of information security and identity management audit and consultancy
In 2020 Richard continued to be a regular attendee of IAWG meetings where
he always provided insightful comments. His insights were instrumental in
developing feedback to requests for comments on documents from various
jurisdictions such as the following:
· multiple components of the Pan Canadian Trust Framework (PCTF)
from the Digital Identification and Authentication Council of Canada
· NIST SP 800-63 Rev 3 on potential changes that could be included
in Rev 4,

Authentication and trust Services) Regulation,

Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS),

the IAWG effort that developed Service Assessment Criteria (SAC) for use by

requirements of NIST Special Publication 800-63 Rev 3 Federation Assurance
at Level 2 and 3 (FAL2 and FAL3), Authentication Assurance at level 3
(AAL3), and Identity Assurance at level 3 (IAL3). In undertaking the
effort he facilitated, over a ten week period, a special sub-group of
Subject Matter Experts from the IAWG;
