H ow ca n de s ig n s a nd processes be kept safe? IPC-1791 is an indus- try-driven and industry-written standard that focuses on protecting two things: controlled unclassified information (CUI) and controlled technical information (CTI)—the information that would be devastating for a company to lose. IPC Validation Services plays a critical role in ensuring that you can keep your informa- tion safe. This is the team that performs the Qualified Manufacturer List (QML) audits, validating the manufacturing process to the four pillars: quality, supply chain risk manage- ment, security, and chain of custody. To learn more about how IPC members participate in the process, we spoke with John Vaughan, vice president of strategic markets at Summit Interconnect, who pro- vides insight into his company's IPC Vali- dation Services journey. If you're working with defense primes, he says, this certification is vital. By Linda Stepanich IPC COMMUNITY 22 SPRING 2023 STANDARDS
