Analyst and investor teach-in and initiation of .SECURE project

 

NCC Group plc, (LSE: NCC, 'the Group'), the international, independent provider of Escrow and Assurance, is today hosting a teach-in for analysts and investors, at which no new material trading information will be made available. 

 

The Group has applied to register the .SECURE generic top level domain (gTLD) as part of the ICANN (Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers) programme to create a new set of gTLDs. The .SECURE gTLD aims to create a universal environment for end-users to operate and navigate the Internet with complete safety and security.

 

The Group has established a new wholly-owned subsidiary, Artemis Internet, Inc, to develop the critical infrastructure and know-how to deliver this project as it sees considerable opportunities in developing and managing .SECURE domains.  It plans to invest progressively some £6m in Artemis over the next 15 months, subject to reaching key milestones.

 

This project, along with the creation by Artemis of the Domain Policy Working Group, a group of influential organisations made up of major financial, software and social media companies, is focussed on web security and the development of a set of innovative new security standards for websites.  All of which support the Group's vision in building a more trustworthy internet.

 

Trading continues to be in line with the Board's expectations.  The Group expects to report its full year results for the year to 31 May 2012 on Thursday, 5 July 2012.
