DATA RETENTION SYSTEM
The amount of interception requests authorized by LEAs continues to expand globally (especially in countries that preserve widespread surveillance capabilities). Apart from lawful interception systems, additional network forensics support facilities, like data retention technologies for collecting and storing intercept-oriented data of all communications, have to be mounted by service providers in an emerging number of states, throughout the world.
Stratign supports these needs with a Monitoring Center Platform for Lawful Interception operating on any network. This solution is fully compliant with lawful regulations on data retention and conforms with the latest ETSI requirements supporting the General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR) and national requirements.
What is Data Retention?
Data retention, also known as records retention, is the sustained storage of an organization’s information for compliance or business motives.
An enterprise may retain information for diverse reasons. One reason is to comply with state and federal regulations. Another is to supply the organization with the competence to recover business critical information, for reasons of business continuity, during the situation of a site-wide data loss, like fire or floods.
Stratign’s Monitoring Centre (STN-MC) – A perfect solution for Lawful Interception
With the capability of intercepting targeted communications from Telecom Switches, the LI system solution from Stratign is a switch-based Lawful Interception System. This nationwide phone interception solution can intercept all communications (mobile and fixed line) which are going through the telecom switches.
When taking data retention into consideration, Stratign’s robust and scalable platform, interfaces through a single platform with multiple networks and multiple technologies. It can also interface to 3rdparty network storage systems and analytical platforms for data access and delivery, supporting multiple delivery standards simultaneously.
The Stratign Monitoring Centre (STN-MC) is a turnkey solution for the monitoring, processing, decoding distribution and presentation of intercepted data of targets from circuit switched networks. (for instance, cell phone and fixed telephony) along with packet switched networks (e.g. internet, email) and is utilized by law enforcement and/or intelligence agencies. The STN MC is compliant with the latest ETSI and/or CALEA specifications for the Lawful Interception System but can also support country specific LI handover protocols.
Additionally, the solution has been designed as a carrier-grade system to enable fast and secure access for data retention by authorized agencies. It permits network operators and Internet service providers to conveniently comply with latest telecom protocols for data retention.
The solution also allows to carry out Bulk Interception of Calls, which supports capturing personal communications and data of thousands of individuals, nationwide.
