Dealing with threats from computer viruses to terrorist attacks
Computer-savvy citizens connect with friends, check their bank balance and make purchases from their computer or smartphone. They expect public data and government transactions to work the same way.
But that same openness and reliance on computerization makes government data and operations even more vulnerable to attack—and attacks potentially more devastating. Cyber threats have increased 8,000 percent since 2002. Physical security of data centers and other facilities has become more critical as threats have grown. So new regulations require agencies to implement robust identity verification solutions that control access to both physical and cyber facilities.
When incidents and natural disasters do occur, governments at all levels must bring public safety and emergency response teams together quickly. For, whatever views citizens have of the role of government, they expect a rapid, coordinated and effective response to emergencies, from bomb threats to tsunamis.
