Public Sector Priorities

Public sector priorities continue to drive requirements for technology-based initiatives that require modernization and transformation. State spending before 2020 showed annualized budget increases with common priorities including cybersecurity, cloud computing, addressing personnel and talent gap issues, leveraging data analytics and improving connectivity with 5G. Election security will also continue to receive substantial attention.

    Public health services are at the forefront of embracing digital technology. Public health has accelerated the pace of technology adoption to address HIPAA compliance, cybersecurity, and the rapid growth of IoT-based medical devices, which has contributed to cybersecurity vulnerability. Finally, SDWAN deployment and expanded information sharing have also raised the imperative for better and more efficient security solutions.

    State and local governments have been hit hard by ransomware and other forms of cyberattack over the past two years, and this trend continues. The threats have also become more dangerous. In February of 2021, a city in the U.S. Southeast faced a targeted attack on its water supply. Cyberattackers allegedly attempted to poison the drinking water supply. They gained authentication credentials and were manipulating the system in an unsuccessful attempt to dump large quantities of lye into the water.

    If you work in state or local government, you have faced unprecedented challenges since March 2020 due to the coronavirus pandemic. Many government agencies quickly reconfigured systems and policies to enable work from anywhere (WFA) environments for employees, a solution not without problems. Remote workers continue to seek access to enterprise resources from a variety of endpoints, both work and personal, as well as mobile devices. But many of the cybersecurity procedures used within enterprise facilities won’t work from remote locations without substantial changes, preparation and planning.

    It has been stated in the press that customer data is more valuable in today’s economy than oil. If this is true, then protecting customer data must be a top priority for all businesses. This means all pathways to customer data must be secured, no matter where that data is stored. The domain name system (DNS) is a foundational network service that is critical to both connectivity and security, as it can provide a back door for data breaches. It should therefore not be overlooked as a first-level security control, especially in times of crisis and change, like the recent influx of home/remote workers.

    Zero Trust architectures have become a compelling means for modern enterprise and government institutions to secure sensitive data in the face of digital transformation and the loss of the traditional network perimeter. The paper describes a Zero Trust architecture’s essential components, its core capabilities and some important use cases that support it. In addition, it explains the critical roles that Domain Name System (DNS) and foundational security can play in your deployment of Zero Trust architectures.
