Validate a Trustmark

The FortMesa Trustmark

Communicate Trust in a Moment

"Public commitment is used to make the public aware of who has committed to a specific practice. Public commitments are longer lasting and more effective then private commitments."

– McKenzie-Mohr & Schultz, 2014

The Trustmark Program

We award organizations who have demonstrated a dedication to the process of security with the FortMesa Trustmark Badge and Certificate of Attestation.

These endorsements certify that the named organization has committed itself to our program and is actively engaged with our platform. Organizations who fail to adequately participate do not qualify to retain the FortMesa Trustmark.

Look for the Seal

Because we certify platform participants who demonstrate a continued focus and attention on the process of security we are able to offer participants an HTML embed that signifies their commitment. This may be displayed on the web or inside applications.

Certificate of Attestation

A third-party endorsed Certificate of Attestation can help assure others of your commitment. These documents often satisfy due diligence requests from partner organizations.

"Group commitment is used to increase the likelihood that individuals will follow through with their commitment because they want to be seen as consistent among their peers"

– Wang & Katvez, 1990

Other Program Notes

Organizations participating in the FortMesa platform are provided with a guided roadmap of industry best practices intended to manage most cyber security risk.

Participants engage in a combination of self and assisted audit and FortMesa retains no liability for losses, errors, omissions or unmanaged risks in the participants’ security program. Trustmark program is not intended to be interpreted as an endorsement regarding the veracity of self assessed security posturing nor does FortMesa validate organizational authorization.
