IT Security Services for Government

Government entities must provide vital public services securely while protecting sensitive information from exposure and misuse, and do so within their budgetary constraints. Federal, state and local governments as well as non-governmental organizations (NGOs) have the same IT security issues as commercial organizations, but often without the same level of resources to implement their information security programs.

Securing Sensitive Data

With the sensitive data many government agencies maintain, they are prime targets for malicious attackers. Government agencies house tax records, social security numbers, credit card numbers, courthouse records, employee information and other personally identifiable information (PII) that cyberthieves crave. Protecting this sensitive information from data breaches is critical.

Complying with regulations and IT security mandates is an issue for government entities as well. Not only must sensitive data be secured, the organization must also demonstrate compliance with laws and mandates covering IT security.
