Kapish achieves IRAP PROTECTED-level certification

Secure enterprise information management provider Kapish says it welcomes the release of the Australian Government’s first official data strategy. Developed in consultation with private, research and not-for-profit sectors, the Australian Data Strategy sets a clear path for Australia’s data system over the next four years, complementing the federal government’s broader digital strategies.

Following its recent ISO 27001 accreditation, Kapish (a Citadel Group company) has achieved PROTECTED-level assessment under the Information Security Registered Assessor Program (IRAP), paving the way for government clients to accelerate transition to secure cloud-based information management. The company says it is ideally positioned to deliver the assurance that its ICT systems and solutions meet the stringent cybersecurity standards set by government.

Kapish earned certification and assessment for Citadel IX, its secure cloud EDRMS and managed service for public sector and regulated enterprises.

The platform and managed service are already protecting more than 50,000 users at key organisations including the CSIRO, NSW Crown Solicitor’s Office, Brisbane City Council and Victoria University, as well as multiple Royal Commissions. Citadel IX can be readily acquired through the key government panels, including the Digital Marketplace, Software Marketplace, eServices, QITC and MICTA/ICTA in Australia.

Kapish and Citadel General Manager Ryan Harris said that although cloud-based technology has introduced exciting new ways of collaborating, that benefit comes with a myriad of challenges for privacy and security.

Achieving recognition required Kapish to address 119 processes for ISO and 850 for IRAP assessment.

IRAP endorses individuals from the private and public sectors to provide cybersecurity assessment services to Australian governments. The PROTECTED-level assessment means Kapish is immediately recognisable as having met the highest standards of security, as outlined by the Australian Signals Directorate (ASD) and the Australian Cyber Security Centre (ACSC).
