Become a CISQ Sponsor

Sponsoring CISQ signals a commitment to the development of high quality software. Sponsors are prominently recognized across government and industry as thought leaders in software quality measurement and analysis. Your sponsorship funds the work that CISQ undertakes – giving your organization a direct leadership position to drive standards requirements, policy recommendations, software certification, and activities to raise awareness of your organization’s support and commitment to software quality. In 2018, CISQ will be active in developing standards for embedded and real-time systems, which is critically important for securing the Internet of Things (IoT).
