Agency IT and security operations teams must rethink how they protect data in a digital world where data is everywhere, particularly when data is in the cloud. Federal agencies should take a chapter from financial institutions’ playbooks and adopt a data-centric approach that includes data encryption, tokenization and key management that protects data across all applications and platforms.
To help agencies better understand how to securely move data and analytics to cloud infrastructures, GovLoop partnered with Micro Focus Government Solutions, a company dedicated to helping agencies protect mission-critical data throughout its lifecycle. In this report, we’ll explore challenges governments face, solutions that help agencies go beyond merely encrypting data at rest and best practices for taking advantage of these solutions. We’ll also gain insight from Susannah Reed and Ernie Tarbox, Federal Account Executives at Micro Focus Government Solutions.
