SAN FRANCISCO – May 8, 2017 – The xDTM Standard Association today welcomed NTT Advanced Technology Corporation, a global leader in information and telecommunications technology services, to its advisory board. NTT joins industry leaders including BASF, BuckleySandler, DocuSign, Dow Jones & Company, FedEx, HP Enterprise, Intel, Linklaters, Microsoft, NBCUniversal, Neustar, SAP, Stanford, the U.S. Postal Service, Visa and others in advancing the global standard for Digital Transaction Management (DTM) to protect and empower organizations and individuals to conduct critical business online with trust and confidence.
The xDTM Standard Association published the first standard for digital transaction management in March 2016 to promote trust and confidence in digital transactions no matter where the parties reside. The Association is led by an Advisory Board composed of leaders from diverse industries and prestigious global enterprises who are thought leaders in the field of information technology, security, and standards development.
“The most critical drivers of standards are business requirements and market needs,” said Heather Petersen, Executive Director of the xDTM Standard Association. “We are honored to have Eiji Kuwana join the xDTM Advisory Board as our first advisor from Japan to share his expertise and understanding of how Japanese companies are approaching digital transformation.”
“As Japanese enterprises move towards digitization of key business processes, executives have unique concerns regarding security, validity, and the protection of sensitive information,” said Dr. Eiji Kuwana, Senior Vice President and Chief Information and Security Officer, NTT Advanced Technology Corp. “I’m excited to join the advisory board to share the Japanese perspective and introduce the xDTM Standard to this region as a set of guidelines by which to evaluate DTM technologies.”
The xDTM Standard Association created the xDTM Standard to ensure digital transactions are protected yet accessible, while limiting exposure to the risks and consequences of noncompliant technologies. By looking for xDTM Standard certification, organizations can evaluate and compare DTM solutions across a common set of criteria and best practices, and ultimately transact business digitally with solutions that instill trust and confidence.
Global participation is critical to ensuring that diverse geographical perspectives are considered while also fostering awareness of the xDTM Standard in different markets. In May, the Association will be holding informational sessions with leading organizations in Japan in order to further this effort.
