“We’d like to offer more applications via mobile devices to our staff. There are conflicting views on how to do that in a systematic, secure, and affordable way.”
Ensuring your agency stays current with the new digital world, we can advise you on options to procure and manage devices, applications, and data in a way that improves efficiency and doesn’t compromise security.
“We’re constantly worried about intrusions. We believe we’re doing everything we can, but it’s tough when you don’t know what you don’t know.”
Running or evaluating stress and penetration testing of networks and connections is necessary to find and fix vulnerabilities. Forensic analysis, reporting, monitoring trends, and training are all essential components of cyber security and risk management.
“Our agency programs produce a tremendous amount of data that is currently silo’d. From our vantage point, we think there are ways to combine this data, find inefficiencies, and reduce risks.”
Combining data from across the organization can spark insights and spur innovation. This kind of collaboration doesn't just happen. Instead, it takes proactive, visionary leadership. IT leaders are in an ideal position to see and enable those opportunities for their agencies.
