Government Classification and Protective Marking Systems
A Boldon James Whitepaper on Government
Classification and Protective Marking Systems
Big data, data governance, data management and securing sensitive data – these are everyday challenges for government organisations around the world, as well as making sure that sensitive data has the right security labelling applied. In this whitepaper we will explore how classification and protective marking schemes are helping government organisations better secure data. We will delve into different country classification and protective marking schemes, what these are and the type of information that requires this treatment as well as the importance of appropriate data categorisation, classification, and security labelling. With government sensitive data it is paramount that organisations ensure the right people have access to the right data and in this whitepaper we will explore how Boldon James data classification solution provides organisations with just that – an effective data security programme – so that they remain secure, compliant and in control.
Topics covered in this whitepaper include:
- Protective marking and other government classification schemes
- Why use protective markings?
- What systems do different countries use to mark or classify data
- Providing deeper visibility and control of critical data
