Secure by default

The public sector has always required high standards of privacy and information security: it deals with sensitive personal data as well as state secrets. And it will always be a target for hackers, criminals, non-state actors and unfriendly national intelligence agencies.

Now the drive towards ‘digital by default’ is exposing IT services to different risks, as public bodies embrace objectives such as:

  • Offering new and better online services for citizens
  • Using internet technology, such as cloud computing and mobile working, to transform operations
  • Cutting costs, reducing the environmental impact of IT and eliminating redundant capacity

Strong security is the foundation for all these goals. Public sector organisations must also face challenges of cost reduction, resource availability, scarce IT security expertise and changing procurement models.
