Achieving compliance with GSi Code Of Connection (CoCo)
In November 2005, The Government published 'Transformational Government - Enabled by Technology' which documents the steps necessary to achieve effective delivery of technology for Government. To develop the necessary trust and confidence within the Public Sector communities and between Government and the citizens, a common approach to risk management and the implementation of an Information Assurance framework becomes increasingly important . The aim of the Code of Connection (CoCo) is to develop the trust required both within and between communities, which then allows more effective use of shared systems and services. The CoCo provides a minimum set of security standards that organisations must adhere to when joining the GSi. This paper addresses some of the key challenges of achieving and maintaining compliance with the GSi Code of Connection (CoCo) for the GCSX.
