The AIC WG – Assessor Qualifications has prepared this revised draft of ILAC G3. This draft is a rather straight forward revision of G3 and due to lack of meeting time was not discussed in length at the meeting of the AIC in April 2019. After the meeting, members of the AIC were asked if they wanted further discussions to be held in the AIC prior to the 60 day circulation, the majority of members indicated they were ready to go for the 60 day circulation to all ILAC members for this draft.

  2. Cloud And Hybrid Environments
  3. Identity
  4. Securing IoT
  5. Regulatory Vigilance
