Secure solution for NSW Crown Solicitor's Office

Monday, 06 September, 2021 | Supplied by: Micro Focus Pty Ltd

The principal objective of the NSW Crown Solicitor’s Office’s is to advise and represent agencies so they can lawfully, effectively and efficiently deliver the state government's policies, programs and projects. The Office obviously holds highly sensitive and protected information that requires strong security and was looking for a cloud-based solution to provide more control over data being held on behalf of various agencies.

The main requirement was to achieve Information Security Registered Assessor Program (IRAP) certification. In addition, the COVID-19 pandemic had highlighted the need for a robust and secure cloud-based solution that would deliver the collaborative environment required from any location.

The Office opted for Content Manager Select because of its ISO 27001 certification and its proven uses cases including the Royal Commissions in Victoria.

Content Manager Select Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) is a robust, flexible and futureproof enterprise content management solution that enables customers to meet compliance, regulatory and privacy obligations while leveraging the benefits of cloud computing. It is the only content management solution in Australia available with IRAP-protected capability out of the box.

In partnership with Microsearch, the NSW Crown Solicitor's Office also integrated and deployed cloud-based enterprise IDOL software. IDOL is an enterprise search, knowledge discovery and analytics platform that helps organisations search, analyse and access all types of secure data. It is used by Content Manager Select for fast and deep document content search and is also the underlying platform for the InfoSource system used by solicitors for researching reference and legal content used to provide advice to clients.

Michael Antonios, Program Manager NSW Crown Solicitor’s Office, said the project has delivered a solution that staff can use with confidence.

"The NSW Crown Solicitor's Office was pleased with the rapid rollout, which saw the project delivered within one week and under budget.

"With Content Manager Select in the cloud, the NSW Crown Solicitor’s Office now has a more secure, faster, more flexible and more cost-effective content management solution.

"All staff can now work remotely with confidence and can access Content Manager Select through an encrypted internet link that can be accessed from any device, anywhere," he said.

The SaaS offering provides the Office with a solution that protects critical information and delivers both the independence and control it was looking for. Sensitive information can be partitioned to ensure that only authorised agencies can access the information they need.

The IRAP assessment is complete and an ongoing process is in place to ensure compliance against the standard, as well as identification and management of threats accelerated and compounded by COVID-19.

Many government agencies are grappling with increased cyberthreats and increased expectations around flexible work arrangements. The two most important assets for any organisation are its people and its data, with both becoming increasingly separated. Content Manager Select provides a modern and secure approach to capturing, finding and managing information while meeting compliance obligations in a secure IRAP-protected offering.
