Comprehensive Security: IT and Government Leaders Get on the Same Page

Whether your users log in remotely or from the office, security remains critical to ensuring a safe and productive work environment. But often, protecting your data and systems is easier said than done.

While there’s no one reason that state and local agencies might struggle to manage risk, a lack of alignment between IT and government leaders will make any security obstacle — whether it’s tied to resources, regulations or information silos — that much more difficult to overcome.

Open communication is key to bridging the understanding gap and paving the way for a proactive, comprehensive security approach that empowers delivery of citizen services. That means technical and nontechnical stakeholders must come together to explore their agency’s security needs, goals and challenges from all sides.

This infographic outlines key ideas that can help guide conversations between IT and government leaders. It includes:

  • Data and talking points about the likelihood and impact of a breach
  • Explanations of how top-priority security solutions support wider objectives
  • Additional considerations, such as common security obstacles
  • High-priority action steps for IT and government leaders

Print it out, share it with your colleagues and reshape the security discussion at your agency.
