The Department of Human Services (DHS) Uses Classification and Labelling to Meet Regulatory Requirements and Secure Personal Information
Ottawa, ON —January 12, 2010 — TITUS The Australian Federal Government Department of Human Services, which includes the Child Support Program, is using TITUS Message Classification (TMC) Software to secure personal information and comply with the Australian Government e-Protective Marking Standard. DHS has rolled out the TITUS offering out to 5,000 employees nationwide, following a rapid deployment over a year ago.
DHS is responsible for administering Australia's Child Support Scheme and handles highly sensitive personal and financial information about the citizens using its services. DHS has invested significant resources to ensure the security of this confidential data. Working with local TITUS reseller Dataflex, DHS researched available options and selected TITUS Message Classification, based on the strength of the offering and the value it delivers.
"When it came to selecting a solution for email classification, key items for us were the flexibility of the solution, as well as the company providing the technology," said Mitch Levy, Assistant Secretary, ICT Infrastructure Management and Telecommunications. “TITUS was able to offer us seamless integration with Microsoft Outlook, which has made this solution exceedingly simple to roll out to our users."
Administration and training on email classification has been minimal over the past year, and there has very little burden on users or administrators. "The value of the TITUS solution is immense. From an IT point of view, I cannot think of another system we’ve been able to roll out with no burden on user or administrators. This ultimately creates a time, cost and risk saving for everyone," said Andrew Gersbach, Dataflex.
