Secure Exchange of Information

Information exchange about threats and vulnerabilities plays a vital role in the success of security responses. A timely and efficient distribution of information can only thrive in a climate of trust. This requires more than an agreement on a common language and framework but also a clear understanding about what can be done with shared information and by who.

Secure exchange of information involves sending, sharing and receiving sensitive information – such as large files – in a safe way via the internet. The demands for this kind of communication will only grow as companies grow and collaborate with partners and suppliers across borders.

The secure transmission of ad-hoc messages small and big files will become more essential in everyday work. In many cases encryption is an essential part of communication. The encryption of emails is one method to ensure that communications via email remain safe.

When it comes to ad hoc sending, sharing and receiving, there are several methods to make it happen safely. One option is to use an exchange portal that is secure and allows encrypted point-topoint messaging as well as storage. Another option is to use cloud folders where access to read and write can be granted.

The NIST document managing the Security of Information Exchanges states that the level of security required for a more organized information exchange must be matched to the risk. This is to ensure that the integrity, confidentiality and accessibility of information is secured when it is transferred between different organizations.
