White Paper: Building Networked Communities Across Government
New Cabinet Office guidance surrounding Non-Corporate Communication Channels (NCCCs) such as Whatsapp, Gmail, or SMS, has been issued in a bid to protect UK Government information from falling into the hands of non-Sovereign entities.
In response, a new, approved alternative to NCCCs created by the public sector, for the public sector, Digital Place for Communities offers Government a powerful digital hub for public servants to securely share information, collaborate, and connect, without risk to National Security.
