Guildford Borough Council Case Study – Delivering Best-of-Breed Information Security
Customer: Guildford Borough Council
Requirement: Data Classification to provide legislative compliance and collaborative working
Solution: Boldon James Email and Office Classifier
Guildford Borough Council faced growing demands to support a number of initiatives, which significantly impacted information security. They needed a solution to ensure that protective marking was uniformly adopted by everyone working with their data and a reliable and customisable software product which could help them enforce it, while also maintaining compliance requirements.
By rolling out the Boldon James Classifier products, Guildford Borough Council were able to enforce information security policies in respect to their new ways of working, increase staff & partner awareness of the sensitivity of information, provide evidence to governing bodies that applicable regulations have been met and leverage investments in their other security technologies.
“We were looking for a simple, reliable and customisable software product, so that we could use our own classifications for our own business needs. Additionally we were looking for a vendor who had the development prowess to customise the product for us, integrate it with existing products such as our email encryption tool and keep it up-to-date with our technology base. We found both in Boldon James.” Steve Wragge-Morley, Head of Business Systems, GBC
