Where is this trend heading? While the data-powered, virtual world vastly improves how people
work and live, it introduces new vulnerabilities and threats continuously. With more data and connection points at risk of cyber breach, agencies seek to secure services that are increasingly digital, virtual, and data-driven.
New threats and vulnerabilities
In this future anyone is vulnerable to the impact of a cyber breach or attack, and especially those without the means or knowledge to manage risks and take early advantage of capabilities that help provide protections.
It’s imperative that agencies develop and maintain trust, or risk people and organizations taking steps to disengage and isolate their data and systems to avert risk.
The impact on government
As the guardian of public data, agencies explore new ways to ensure a more secure, resilient ecosystem through trusted digital identity and authentication and secure the trust and safeguard the confidence of citizens, employees, and partners.
