This news story has been archived
An article in Desider Magazine March 2018 (page 9) describes a solution used to make sharing sensitive documents with authorised organisations and industry more efficient. The same solution - from member company Kahootz -is also used by Team Defence Information. We set up workspaces for groups that need to collaborate - e.g. in planning for our Defence Information 18 Event. Our implemenation is branded TD-Info Share.
The Desider article says, "Working with Information Systems and Services, DE&S has delivered an online solution that makes sharing sensitive documents with authorised organisations and industry more efficient.
Defence Share, in partnership with Kahootz, can be used for pan-defence collaboration, including sharing and reviewing documents up to official-sensitive.
It replaces the need to exchange official-sensitive information using encrypted CDs and courier services, saving time and effort, and it can greatly improve the way organisations collaborate.
The service has achieved industry-standard certifications and it is also the only system of this type to be accredited by Defence Assurance and Information Security.
Defence Share costs a maximum of £3.60 (ex-VAT) per user per month, payable by the sponsoring MOD team, and there is a minimum of 20 members per workspace.
Craig Savery, IT Strategy and Architecture Assistant Head at DE&S, said: “This secure online service will make sharing information far easier, ensuring DE&S teams can work more efficiently with any uthorised external organisation and industry partner.”
