Government agencies have never had access to so much data, or the modern capabilities to access and use data. Increased value of data can be obtained by turning it into manageable and usable information, while leveraging modern technologies to protect data from cyber security breaches.

Government agencies continue to face challenges from legacy systems, resulting in vast amounts of data not being fully leveraged and heightened cyber security risk. Snatched from 2018 headlines: “. . . federal agency data is under siege,” with 57 percent of federal agencies experiencing a data breach in the past year, over three times the number of agencies reporting breaches two years ago. How can government agencies better protect and use data to drive enhanced decision making and taxpayer transparency?
