CompTIA has dedicated resources in Washington, D.C. and across the country working on behalf of our diverse membership. We support policies that positively impact the ability of the information technology (IT) industry to develop, manufacture, and sell solutions in the global marketplace. We work to promote investment and innovation, market access, effective cybersecurity, consistent privacy regulation, streamlined procurement, and research and development. As the leading provider of vendor-neutral IT certifications, we also champion policies that promote a well-trained technical workforce.
Federal & Global Policy
CompTIA provides our members with a voice in Washington on key technology issues arising before Congress, the executive branch, and regulatory agencies. We work to advance member interests through committees focused on broadband and telecommunications, cybersecurity, emerging technologies, privacy, tax, workforce, and global trade and market access issues.
International Trade Regulation & Compliance
CompTIA works to advance the interests of our members by shaping regulatory policy in the U.S. and in capitals around the world.

We also assist members in developing strong in-house global trade compliance programs.
