A current example is the December 31, 2017 deadline for Federal Contractors to protect Controlled Unclassified Information (CUI), as required by the controls in NIST SP 800- 171. CUI is a culmination of various non-classified categories of data used by Departments and Agencies. This regulation places an onus on Federal Contractors to properly protect that information. Sienna Group is able to identify, classify and protect the information in accordance with NIST SP 800-171 controls. “We know where the data is at all times and protect it based upon the sensitivity of the data and not simply the rights of the user”. This ensures that if the data goes to the cloud, Sienna can visualize it and look at its behavior to understand where it’s at risk. This enables Sienna clients to better comply with the requirement to protect the information, because they have complete visibility and evidence of usage, which is something most organizations seriously lack.
One of the key differentiators of Sienna Group is that they offer a managed service for data protection.
We offer a full-suite of managed services around data protection that provides visibility to the behavior of sensitive data, arming our customers with the right information at the right time to make informed decisions on how to protect their vital assets
With a strong belief in protecting what matters most and staying focused on the data, Sienna also has an offering focused on trade secret asset management. This product leverages blockchain technology to track creation and subsequent changes made to trade secrets allowing us to continuously identify the value of the information to the company, protect it, and deliver evidence of any misappropriation in a legally defensible way. When combined with how they protect similar data elements, this offering is a compelling solution with regards to how companies are able to protect their assets.
