FINOS ANNOUNCES FORMATION OF COMMON CLOUD CONTROL PROJECT
We recently announced the formation of the Common Cloud Controls Project. In collaboration with Citi and supported by more than 20 FINOS member firms, the project aims to establish consistent controls for compliant public cloud deployments in the financial services sector. Complete the form if you're a FINOS member and wish to get involved. For those who aren't FINOS members yet, we encourage you to consider applying for membership here. To learn more, check out the press release.
The Common Domain Model (CDM) is now accessible in Python, thanks to the collaborative efforts of CLOUDRISK, FT Advisory, and TradeHeader teams. This milestone opens up a world of opportunities to a new community of developers looking to leverage CDM in their projects. To learn more, check out the latest blog post by ISDA's Ian Sloyan.
The FDC3 project is thriving and we're eager to boost engagement even further. We're currently seeking volunteers to participate as beta-testers for FDC3 and Open Source Readiness (OSR) certification. Your feedback will help us refine and improve the standard. If you’re interested, please complete this form or reach out to our Senior Technical Architect, Rob Moffat at firstname.lastname@example.org. We're also seeking new maintainers for FDC3 identity and language integrations. If you have the expertise and would like to contribute to the project, contact us at email@example.com.
