Government organizations collect some of the most sensitive personally identifiable information (PII) on their citizens and businesses, and they are expected to protect this data. Yet, that’s exactly what makes federal, state and local governments alluring targets. In Q1 2020 alone, there was a 278% increase in breached government records around the globe, a shocking 17 million total leaked records. In the US, state and local governments are particularly susceptible to breaches and have seen a 50% rise in cyberattacks between 2017 and 2020.
Elected officials, civil servants and departments that support them need to earn and maintain their constituents’ trust — stolen data weakens that trust while threatening stability and security. It’s now more important than ever for government organizations and agencies to discover and protect all of their personal and sensitive data, while meeting evolving compliance regulations, some of which they may have actually helped put into place. Beyond citizen information, government organizations have to secure the same type of sensitive data as most enterprises — such as employee information.
