Trusted data protection around the world: So that citizens know that (their) data is protected in their home country
The digitization of government and public services internal processes opens up new opportunities including faster, simpler processes that allow them to engage with citizens and stakeholders. It does, however, open up gateways for hackers and criminal activities, such as espionage, data theft, and electoral manipulation.
Public institutions must therefore lead by example in the secure handling of digital data and communications and provide the legal framework for other organizations to follow.
The government and public sector deal with highly sensitive, personal, and classified data that needs to be protected at all costs. Given the severe consequences of a data breach, it’s critical for them to build on reliable and proven cryptographic cybersecurity solutions that address the key issues of trust, identity management, and privacy.
