Local, State, and Federal Government

Because of their vast amounts of sensitive data, agencies at the state, local and federal levels are being targeted by malicious attackers at an alarming rate.  In fact, the public sector saw more confirmed data breaches in 2015 than any other single industry.  Compounding the problem, public sector organizations are working under shrinking budgets and are faced with a host of compliance mandates that complicate their operations.   

Government organizations must be able to carry the burden of public trust with confidence.  They must invest in cyber and data protections and ensure that they are receiving maximum value from all of their IT systems, processes and people.  Proactive government organizations must invest in:

  • Assessments of IT risk, including governance and applications
  • Secure credit card processing systems
  • Secure networks and systems
  • Technical security training
  • Data flow mapping
  • Process improvement projects to maximize efficiency
  • Identity governance and access management
