IT Solutions for Government

You’ve Got Challenges. We’ve Got Solutions.

Improve Public Interaction with Secure Data Access

IT solutions for government demand an increased focus on digital transformation. After all, the world continues to become increasingly more digitized. As a result, people have come to expect ease of use from businesses in the private sector.

But that focus is shifting to the public sector as well. That’s creating challenges for government at all levels, but particularly the local level.

Apart from an improved consumer experience, local government has to meet the expectation of an increasingly mobile workforce. Workers need to remain in contact independent of their location, for instance.

5 Challenges for Local Government

  • Digital Transformation
  • Cybersecurity
  • Innovation
  • Technology Advancements
  • Limited Budgets

Digital Transformation

As mentioned, citizens expect greater access to data. Increasing its availability and implementing APIs for internal use and public consumption are top priorities.

Your IT department has to keep pace with technology changes like the Internet of Things (IoT), wearables, data analytics, and much more.

Cybersecurity

As a gatekeeper for voter records, tax information, social security numbers, and infrastructure information access information, your municipality is a focal point for cyber-attacks. Many cybercriminals view municipalities as low-hanging fruit considering the vast consumer data and often poorly managed security environments.
 
A staggering 53.3% of local government institutions do
not even keep track of their cyberattacks. And if you suffer a breach, the costs can be staggering: 
 
  • The average cybersecurity breach costs states between $665,000 to $40.53 million, with a median cost varying from $60,000 to as high as $1.87 million.
  • The average ransom amount demanded by cybercriminals from 2013-2020 was $835,758.33.
  • 60% of states either have “voluntary” or no cybersecurity training programs at all.
  • 53.2% of attacks in state government are targeted toward cities and local schools across the nation.
 
What can you do? One of the best places to start is recognizing your organization isn’t immune to a cyber-attack. But apart from general awareness of the risks, there are cybersecurity best practices you should follow.

 

Innovation

With day-to-day operations consuming your time, finding time to innovate gets lost. But, doing so is critical to supporting business management, customer relations, change management, and your operations in general.

Technology Advancements

Change is constant. Information technology and applications evolve quickly. Staying on top of those changes, however, can be challenging.

Ongoing training and access to expert resources are needed to learn and remain current.

Limited Budgets

In a study by Granicus, 73% of IT leaders indicated they needed to increase the IT budgets to mitigate technology challenges. Unfortunately, budget allocations typically fell short of requirements. In addition, legacy IT systems are costly to maintain, further exacerbating the issue.

Not surprisingly, cloud solutions have become increasingly important. Cloud services accelerate digital transformation. They're cost-effective, scalable, secure, and more flexible.

Ongoing training and access to expert resources are needed to learn and remain current.
