Specific consideration regarding Aerospace Defense and Information Security

This industry is full of highly sensitive data because this industry is directly tied to our nation’s security and well-being. The information on this website is highly classified due to its nature.

This enables us to work hand in hand in the promotion of security in this serious area.

Legal considerations

We listed compliance with legal considerations as one of the uses and relevance of collecting data from you.  Graham and Denning argue that the background of a company’s legal compliance is that the company relies on the government and other law enforcement agencies to facilitate peace-keeping missions (Graham and Denning, 1972). Where this company deems it fit, we might share your personal information, including your past activity on the website, with the police or other law enforcement agencies to aid a legal process. This company may also assist the agencies with an investigation concerning fraud or a crime. Compliance with legal considerations also includes reporting any security concern to protect and prevent the occurrence of a crime.
