And after legislating, what else?

In the previous post I commented that electronic signatures can be a source of efficiency for countries, but this requires to rule correctly. The whole thing does not end here.

Once the legal and regulatory framework is defined, it is time to put aside governments and to focus on organizations, both new certification services providers and corporations that want to make use of electronic signatures as a competitive advantage.

For the first ones it is vital to achieve successfully the approval processes of the countries (governments) to be able to issue electronic certificates with legal value, as both, technical and economic guarantee requirements are often high, and undertake an investment of this size can not afford to leave the most important point, the approval, random.

These procedures are not easy to fulfill and sometimes they are ambiguous or subject to interpretation so it is of invaluable help to have the support of someone who has lived them in the first person and repeatedly, someone who has sound arguments to defend our investment.

On the other hand, it is also vital that the certificates issued by these certification services providers are admitted to the major manufacturers of software and browsers such as Google, Mozilla, Microsoft, Apple and Adobe.

Sometimes this requires a WebTrust for CA or EV WebTrust seal, difficult and costly to achieve (ES).

Experience in these admission procedures greatly shortens deadlines, sometimes exceeding the year-long.

For the latter, implement electronic signatures in the organization should always go through the definition of an Electronic Signature Master Plan (which we'll talk about in later posts. DONE!!)
