Secure Information Sharing and Collaboration for the Defence Industry

The Defence Industry is a significant target for foreign and domestic threat actors who target high value sovereign capabilities and supply chains.

Use Case:

Trusted Information Sharing between Defence and the global Defense Supply Chain

Defence need to protect national interests. However, with multiple supply chain partners in different locations, sensitive and classified information is increasingly at risk of a breach. Defence Industry organisations, in particular Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs), often find it difficult to meet the strict security and compliance required of them by Defense. With limited resources they struggle to find ways to keep information safe, while meeting deadlines. Worse, if they can’t demonstrate compliance they won’t be able to compete for Defence business.

Kojensi allows the Defence Industry to:

\

Instantly establish secure workspaces to collaborate across organisations, while ensuring only cleared users see sensitive information

\

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

\

Work with multiple people outside of the organisation, all with different compliance requirements

\

Ensure compliance with mandated security controls, inc. clearance, organisation, nationality

\

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

Challenge

Defense needs to work with a number of major Defense suppliers when building the next general Naval vessel. Although major Defence Suppliers have strong and established secure platforms, some of their suppliers are new to the industry and have limited secure facilities and procedures.

Solution

By implementing a government accredited PROTECTED information sharing cloud service, Defence Industry organisations consume the platform as they need, without the substantial costs of implementing new on premise secured ICT infrastructure. Within minutes, they can set up a shared workspace and invite all their supply chain partners in to share and collaborate on the information required to carry out the project, knowing that they will only have access to information they are authorised to.

Securely share and co-author large files between Defence and Defence Industry partners

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.

Empower users to share classified information simply and easily

Unlike other information sharing platforms, the Kojensi cloud service gives the power of sharing to your information custodians, not your ICT staff.

Users are empowered to set the terms and conditions on how and to who information is shared, by attributes including organisation, classification and nationality, ensuring only the right people have to access the right information at the right time.

Users can then create Community of Interest’s in seconds and invite new partners to join within minutes, knowing they’ll only have access to files that they are entitled to.

Comment on, discuss and track changes

Files can be commented on, discussions can be had within the workspace, and with Kojensi’s integrated Content and Records Management platform, all file changes are fully version controlled and tracked.

Result

Classified Defence Industry information is shared within the secure Kojensi ecosystem, ensuring it does not fall into the wrong hands. Defence Industry organisations, in particular SMEs, now have an cost-effective accredited PROTECTED means of ensuring the security of classified and sensitive information. They can also share and collaborate on documents in real-time to improve productivity, shorten delivery time and improve project outputs.

Kojensi provides Defence Industry organisations with a means to securely collaborate with Defence and other partners.
