Protecting Sensitive Data in the Digital Era
Automate risk management and compliance
Technology transformed the way state and local governments serve constituents. Agencies receive and store sensitive personal data and enable access to key services. This makes them a target by those seeking political, social, and monetary gain. State and local agencies must protect data and respond quickly and effectively when breached.
Automated risk management and compliance solutions help government institutions:
- Align priorities across security, operations, and compliance
- Prioritize remediation
- Enable secure migration to software-defined data centers
- Support continuous assessments and monitoring
Provide public services consistently, securely, and cost-effectively
The promise of new and expanding e-Government initiatives is providing higher and more convenient levels of service to the public.
By implementing information security best practices and adopting the right technologies, government agencies can cost-effectively deliver on that promise.
