Australian Government Email Protective Marking Standard

Stay compliant with a trusted tool for protective markings

What is EPMS?

The Australian Government has implemented policies and procedures around classification and protective control of information assets, aligned with their value, importance and sensitivity. According to the Email Protective Marking Scheme (v2012.2), governmental agencies must ensure that all official emails are marked with a protective marking that identifies the maximum classification and protection requirements for that information.

Titus Classification Suite supports version 2018.2 of the standard and is in use by over 30 federal agencies in Australia.
