Security in an All-IP World

Government agencies can experience the benefits of consolidated telecommunications networks by migrating to all-IP networks – including productivity-enhancing voice services, lower operational costs, ease of use and simplified management – but this transition also requires an in-depth review of their cyber security tools and strategies. Seventy-one percent of government leaders report feeling prepared and vigilant regarding their agency’s cyber security. However, 56 percent are challenged to hire and retain cyber security personnel, and 48 percent say that security spending accounts for less than five percent of their overall IT budget.

This Policy Guide from Public CIO and AT&T provides government agencies with a framework for discussing, planning and developing effective security strategies when migrating to an all-IP network.

Highlights include:

  • An overview of the evolving nature of security
  • Best practices for developing a security strategy in tandem with IP network migration
  • Guidance and thought leadership from government security and IT executives
