US Government Policies and Regulations 

In recent years, Congress has enacted several laws intended to enhance information sharing within various industries.  These congressional acts also require the protection of a client's sensitive personal information.  These new laws include:

  • Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (HIPAA)
  • Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002 for Financial and Accounting Disclosure Information
  • Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act of 1999 for Financial Services Modernization
  • Federal Information Security Management Act of 2002 (FISMA)

The legal community has also been effected by the vast amounts on unintentional data contained in electronic documents, and new rules are also forming in the area of Electronic Discovery.

The commercial release of Document Detective is based on Department of Defense regulations and security policies require a reliable human review of 100% of the information transferred by an individual who is knowledgeable of the subject matter. This would typically be the user who created the document. Unfortunately, the typical user has neither the training nor the tools necessary to conduct this review adequately. The Document Detective security scanner was designed specifically to meet the US Government's 100% reliable human review criteria, and ManTech can provide the necessary training so that users apply this tool effectively. Security regulations and policy that apply to electronic document transfers include:

  • DOD 8500.1, "Information Assurance (IA)", 24 October 2002 
  • DOD 8500.1, "Information Assurance (IA)", Implementation, 6 February 2003
  • DOD 5200.22-M
  • DOD 5200.2-STD
  • DCIC 6/3
  • NISPOM Chapter 8
  • Joint Department of Defense Intelligence Information System (DoDIIS)/Cryptologic Sensitive Compartmented Information (SCI) Information Systems Security Standards (JDCSISSS), Revision 2, Chapter 18
  • DIAM 50-23, Enclosure 7, 1 March 2002
  • Army Regulation 25-2, BBP #03-EC-T-0002
