Protect What Matters Most - Citizen Sensitive Data

Protect the personal data of our nation’s citizens across complex and critical government networks.

Government officials are responsible for a broad spectrum of citizens’ personal information, from Social Security numbers and tax documents to property deeds and census data. They are also responsible for creating systems to protect that information and ensuring the network infrastructure is safeguarded from attacks, although this is often hampered by complex IT environments and limited budgets and staff.

Over the past few years, the public sector has been hit with ransomware attacks, making essential services, including 911 emergency centers, unavailable. Governments are also at higher risk of hacktivist attacks from groups trying to promote a political or social agenda, not to mention unexpected threats from contractors and employees. Elected leaders may not be aware of the level or types of cyberattacks on their networks, or they may not have teams in place qualified to handle security situations. Cybersecurity ends up being a lower priority compared to funding emergency services and education – until a data breach happens.

Spirion minimizes the risk associated with citizen information and highly sensitive agency data. With accurate visibility into sprawling data repositories, public sector agencies will reduce risk exposure, improve efficiencies, and inform decision-making while facilitating compliance with data protection and privacy legislation, including HIPAA, CJIS, CMMC, PCI-DSS, FERPA, and more.
