Boldon James, the secure  military messaging and data classification company will host a live briefing on the future of high grade NATO military messaging, “Future Proofing your Military Messaging System with a Data Centric Approach,” on 6th June, 2019 (2pm BST).

This free session, produced in association with Defence IQ, will deliver practical insight on embedding commercial-off-the-shelf solutions to extending messaging capability and compliance with legacy and emerging international NATO messaging standards.

A live question and answer session for military end-users will follow the webinar.

Why are militaries revising the messaging tools they use?

In an increasingly connected and contested environment, data must move seamlessly between applications and different environments without having its integrity placed under threat. The urgency among European militaries to guarantee messaging workflow and support to meet operational requirements has been particularly intense in recent years.

NATO recognises this and has outlined several new standards to ensure the safety of sensitive data.

NATO STANAG 4774 and STANAG 4406 aim to respond to new interoperability requirements to accommodate common XML-based formats and syntax for confidentially metadata. Additionally, STANAG 4778 defines how a confidentiality label is bound to the data and how cryptographic techniques ensure the integrity of data and label.

As a result, defence organisations are shifting away from constrained X.400 systems to more modern communication infrastructures and SMTP-based solutions that adhere to new NATO standards.

Ensuring secure messaging in a modern defence environment

Systems that integrate seamlessly with MS Outlook present a familiar and intuitive user interface – a factor many organisations are embracing as a way to enforce messaging standards with ease.

Working in close partnership with NATO, Boldon James is highlighting ‘out of the box’ solutions that lie the heart of NATO marking standards and compliances.

What will attendees learn?

  • How to comply with existing and emerging national, international and NATO communication and messaging standards;
  • Why it is vital to implement a Data Centric Security approach with data classification and labelling at the core;
  • The benefits of adopting a single COTS platform to provide support across legacy systems and emerging communication platforms;
  • How to assure the integrity and accuracy of all communications with third-party organisations.
