IFIP has a face lift
This month we have more news from IFIP, the international federation of national tech professional bodies like IITP, and have asked New Zealand's IFIP representative, Elizabeth Eastwood, to give us an update.
IFIP has been given a face lift as an outcome of work behind the scenes over the last two years.
IFIP Website is ready (almost)
To discover what is happening at the international level, IFIP offers two useful starting points:
http://www.ifipnews.org/ for the latest news and information (including New Zealand's ITx conference); and
http://ifip.org/ to answer your questions relating to the 14 technical committees, various domain committees, numerous events, membership benefits, media releases, etc.
Check Out the IFIP Digital Library
IFIP is pleased to announce there's been significant progress in implementing its new Digital Library (DL), which means IFIP members now have greatly improved access to conference papers and published works.
The DL now includes all IFIP publications by Springer from 2010 to 2016, with the exception of nine proceedings. In addition, more than 80 per cent of the 2017 proceedings are available.
It also provides the first eCollection (non-Springer) volume, "Open Problems in Network Security". This can be accessed from the DL home page and is also available in the collection for the relevant Technical Committee and conference.

Professional Certification - IFIP Accredits First Non-English ICT Certification
IFIP has recognised the first non-English ICT Certification with the accreditation of the Information Processing Society of Japan's (IPSJ) Certified IT Professional (CITP) system.
IFIP's International Professional Practice Partnership (IP3) announced the accreditation last month, affording international recognition to Japanese professionals holding the CITP designation.
Under IP3's Accreditation Program, national ICT societies that have qualified for the program offer reciprocal recognition to professionals from other accredited societies, improving international mobility for ICT professionals.

This announcement is significant because CITP qualification relies on the Skills Framework for the Information Age (SFIA), which is also true for our NZ Chartered IT Professional qualification.
