Government or federal organisations, including both central and state departments or local councils, constantly deal with sensitive data and recognise the need to protect it from the point of creation through to distribution, storage and destruction. A data breach can not only be extremely costly but can also impact the political and economic environment.

Customer Benefits
The purpose of classifying data

Data Classification can bring huge benefits; it can make users more aware of the sensitivity of the data they are using, drive data protection software and prevent individuals from accessing or mistreating sensitive data. Data Classification takes the risk out of sensitive data sharing.

We have been protecting sensitive central and local government communications against data leakage for over 30 years. Our unique Classifier360 approach to classification enables users to benefit from the structure and consistency of automated classification techniques, blended with the right amount of user input for your organisation, to produce valuable and useful classification for your data.
