TSCP Publishes White Paper on Securing Data for Global Collaboration

April 26, 2012

VIENNA, Va., April 26, 2012 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ — The Transglobal Secure Collaboration Participation, Inc. (TSCP) published its latest white paper titled: Secure Global Collaboration with Information Labeling and Handling (ILH). The white paper is intended for technology leaders who work with and manage large global supply chains that are concerned with protecting data shared among their collaborators.

The defense industry has long lacked integrated solutions that bring together digital policy management, data labeling, access control and rights management. As a result, companies have been forced to rely heavily on end users and costly manual security procedures that hinder collaboration. The ILH specification, expected to be completed and released for adoption later this year, helps companies to interpret policies and regulations, identify data sensitivity and apply access and data protection controls consistently across organizations to meet information security requirements.

Andy Han, Vice President of Products at NextLabs, Inc. (www.nextlabs.com), a TSCP member company, authored the paper; Han has worked with some of the largest global companies to develop and deploy Information Risk Management solutions. Additional contributors to the white paper include engineers and architects from TSCP, BAE Systems, Lockheed Martin, U.S. National Security Agency (NSA), Deep-Secure and TITUS, providing valuable insights from industry, government and technology providers.

“We are very excited to be able to share this overview of the ILH specification with technology leaders outside of TSCP,” said Keith Ward, President and CEO of TSCP. “The interest in ILH and its unique approach for streamlining secure collaboration will help TSCP members and their suppliers execute secure programs with greater efficiency.”

The white paper is available for download at http://www.tscp.org.
