Creating a Holistic Cybersecurity Strategy for Government

Today, government’s IT infrastructure is under increasing pressure from a variety of adversaries with a number of objectives, ranging from individual and organized criminals seeking financial gain to nation states seeking political and military advantages to activists and terrorists seeking to undermine basic values.

The result has been a deluge of attacks that have harmed agencies, put government employees and other citizens at risk and damaged confidence in our democratic processes. Breaches of the Internal Revenue Service and the Office of Personnel Management have exposed personal information of millions of individuals. Leaked information stolen from political party officials has been used in attempts to sway a presidential election, and attempts have been made to access state voter registration databases.

This situation does not have to continue. There exists the capability to protect the nation’s data and IT resources. But something is missing: a strategic, risk-based cybersecurity program that prioritizes the nation’s applications and data. Implementing it, however, means overcoming some particular challenges.

To help you understand why a holistic and strategic program is necessary for the public sector today, and how to actually achieve it, GovLoop spoke with Earl Matthews, Vice President, Enterprise Security Solutions Hewlett Packard Enterprise Services, U.S. Public Sector. Matthews is a highly decorated, award-winning retired U.S. Air Force Major General with a successful career influencing the development and application of cybersecurity and information management technology.

  • Communicating Innovation in Federal Government

    Federal Government spending on ‘obsolete technology’ continues to increase. Supporting the twin pillars of improved digital service delivery for citizens on the one hand, and the increasingly optimized and flexible working practices for federal employees on the other, are neither easy nor inexpensive tasks. This whitepaper explores how federal agencies can leverage the value of existing agency technology assets while offering IT leaders the ability to implement the kind of employee productivity, citizen service improvements and security demanded by federal oversight.

  • IT Transformation Trends: Flash Storage as a Strategic IT Asset

    MIT Technology Review: Flash Storage As a Strategic IT Asset For the first time in decades, IT leaders now consider all-flash storage as a strategic IT asset. IT has become a new operating model that enables self-service with high performance, density and resiliency. It also offers the self-service agility of the public cloud combined with the security, performance, and cost-effectiveness of a private cloud.
