Secure File Sharing and Collaboration for
Critical Infrastructure

CI-SoNS reform under the SLACIP Act for Critical Infrastructure protection requires secure data management. Kojensi is a secure, government-accredited file-sharing and collaboration platform to help meet information security requirements.
Use Case:

Secure Information Sharing for Critical Infrastructure

The recent introduction of the SLACIP Act and Systems of National Significance (SoNS) regulations are aimed at improving the resilience and risk management practices of Australia’s Critical Infrastructure sector and making it easier for organisations and governments to securely share information. It impacts a range of industries deemed critical infrastructure including Energy, Telcom, Financial Services, Utilities, Healthcare and Education.

Kojensi is an Australian government-accredited PROTECTED SaaS or on-premises platform that enables Critical Infrastructure organisations and their partners to securely share and collaborate on sensitive and classified information, all within a secure, controlled information environment.

 

Kojensi allows Critical Infrastructure to:

\

Securely share files with different clearance levels internally, with partners and government – all within a single repository.

\

Instantly establish secure workspaces to collaborate internally and with third parties, while ensuring only cleared users see sensitive information.

\

Control access and sharing with granular, zero trust ABAC policies using attributes including security classification, country and organisational releasability.

\

Assists with meeting SLACIP, SoNS and other Australian government requirements including ISM, DISP and PSPF.

\

Collaborate real-time on the same document, without having to send multiple versions through email.

\

Share files easily and quickly, in a highly secure environment.

Challenge

If your organization falls under Critical Infrastructure in Australia you need to adopt and maintain a risk management program, including any cyber threats to the digital ecosystem of a critical infrastructure asset and insider threats within a Critical Infrastructure workforce. In addition to the obligations for critical infrastructure assets under the SLACIP Act, any organisation classified as SoNS must also comply with Enhanced Cyber Security Obligations (ECSO). Companies that work with and supply these organisations must also have a secure method to collaborate on sensitive information.

 

Solution

Risk management and governance are critical to SLACIP and SoNS, however, enforcing these mandates is another matter. The level of compartmentalised access and sharing controls required for the management of sensitive and classified information can be costly and difficult to achieve.

Kojensi provides a turnkey solution with a government-accredited PROTECTED information sharing cloud service and is also available on-premises. Kojensi’s industry leading attribute-based access control (ABAC) model makes the platform unique. User and document attributes control the flow of information and facilitate secure sharing to validate access and sharing policies each and every time a file is accessed or shared internally or with industry partners. A full audit trail, version control, and tracking ensure transparency and help meet auditing requirements.

Critical Infrastructure organisations can consume the platform as needed, without the substantial costs of implementing new on-premises secured ICT infrastructure. Within minutes, users can set up a shared workspace and invite internal and external partners in to share and collaborate on the information required to carry out projects, knowing that users will only have access to information they are authorised to.

Securely share Sensitive information with Internal and third Parties

Kojensi allows for easy knowledge transfer in an accredited safe and controlled hosted environment without having to grant access to your internal networks.

With Kojensi, securely collaborate internally, with partners and government, and share files that may have multiple classifications within a single repository for ease of management using Attribute Based Access Control (ABAC) policies. 

Information owners can set and enforce strict control over information access and sharing using ABAC policies. Access is only granted once a user meets the requirements to release a file to them based on based on key attributes including a user’s organisation, nationality, clearance, and compartmentalisation of information.

Kojensi Upload UI

Securely share and co-author sensitive files

Information stays within a secure government-accredited PROTECTED cloud service. Users can edit the files directly within each workspace to ensure the security, integrity and availability of the content. Users can upload multiple files at once or large files, and notify relevant parties that the information is now ready and available to access.

Audit User Activity

Kojensi audits all activity in the platform to ensure compliance and assist with auditing requirements. It includes a robust auditing platform that records a full user interaction history of all changes made to files, workspaces and other administrative tasks.
