The Data Challenge:
The potential for a data security breach can affect any institution or organization, but when it comes to matters of public safety or homeland security, the threat can become gravely serious. With that in mind, government organizations – from local to state to federal – have a unique and stringent set of challenges to face. Between ever-multiplying compliance initiatives, maintenance of public records, and a broad pool of employees and contract vendors, finding the most secure and efficient way to manage data can become a balancing act. Each one of those daily activities can open the door for a potential data leak.
We at Intelligent ID know that it can be a painstaking initiative to accurately monitor and protect the volume of data associated with diverse government agencies, especially when even the most minute data can prove valuable to an outsider (or insider) looking to penetrate a larger data-web. To complicate the matter, the budget to spend on monitoring and protection measures is shrinking, making it all the more important to choose solutions that minimize overhead and man-hours without sacrificing performance. In case of government security, there is no room for compromise when it comes to the integrity of the crucial data being protected.
