PROJECT:

G-Cloud

Challenge

Ministry A, a large UK Government department required connection to other government departments and agencies, those other departments and agencies also needed access to this department to provide a full exchange of information

Ministry A, had full security checks in place, their date was very secure, and their reputation for security very important to them. Allowing other IT systems to connect to them will increase Ministry A’s risk.

Solution

The only way to resolve this situation was to ensure that the other agencies and departments met standard operational security requirements and are regularly audited against these. The requirements of a Code of Connection reduced levels of access, checks email content, and scans attachments for viruses prior to access to the central department.

Outcome

A new standard template that all departments / businesses use to connect and do business with a central government department

  • Private sector security when doing business with the public sector
  • Risk of loss of data mitigated
  • Reduction of Cyber crime to government and business.

Set template for G-Cloud connection
