LONDON, May 5, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Digital Identity Security Company (DISC) announced that the company was selected to work with the Commonwealth Secretariat on a new secure communications platform. The Commonwealth Secretariat, the main intergovernmental agency and central institution of the Commonwealth of Nations, is responsible for facilitating communications and co-operation between its 53 member independent and sovereign states.
Cybersecurity is a growing concern for all governmental institutions. Keeping communications secure, in an environment where cyber terrorism and threats are a serious risk, remains an ever present concern. Private businesses and government institutions are doing everything they can to prevent against cyber-attacks, hacking and unsecure communications. DISC, which creates identity based, end-to-end encrypted digital asset transfer platforms, was chosen to partnership with the Commonwealth to transform the nature of communication between countries on criminal justice matters by providing a highly secure, distributed, identity verified communication platform that will enable transfer, reception and decryption of communications via digital asset transfer.
"This project responds to a pressing need for better methods of secure communication to facilitate cooperation in investigations," says Steven Malby, Head of the Law Development section, Rule of Law Division at the Commonwealth Secretariat. "We are pleased by the support from our member countries, who have challenged us to provide an efficient and innovative new communications platform."
DISC develops systems for the digital economy that utilize Distributed Ledger Technology, hardware and software to create identity based, end-to-end encrypted digital asset transfer platforms. The approach combines "self-sovereign" and "sovereign" identity systems to enable the platform to partner with countries and corporations to deliver technology-based solutions that protect the identity and communications of citizens where they live and work.
"We are excited to be partnering with the Commonwealth Secretariat on this important project at a time when secure communications is paramount," says Amy Scott, CEO of DISC. "We believe that our project, which will deploy identity management and digital communications for this key department, can ultimately deliver significant benefit across 53 countries engaged in safeguarding the security of nearly one third of the world's population."
DISC works with government agencies, businesses and individuals. For more information about the company's expertise and services, visit MeetDISC.com.
