In this article “That ongoing threat is the driving force behind a new cross-industry, non-profit being launched at this year’s RSA Conference, called the Trustworthy Internet Movement.

The Trustworthy Internet Movement (TIM) is a vendor-neutral organization with a mission to resolve major lingering security issues on the Internet, such as SSL governance and the spread of botnets and malware and to ensure that security is built into the very fabric of private and public clouds.

… Three core pillars will guide the work and focus of TIM:

  • Innovation – TIM will focus on fostering innovation to solve the hard problems of the Internet via funding new solutions and the provision of appropriate technical assistance and resources to address them.
  • Collaboration – TIM will provide collaborative frameworks for discussing these problems and working towards solutions through expert and stakeholder working groups. Working group results will be published on a regular basis.
  • Individual expertise – TIM will leverage specialized knowledge and expertise from the brightest and best in the industry to guide and support working group developments.”
