Keeping government data safe
The risk of cyberattacks on the public sector has never been greater. With digital criminals becoming ever more sophisticated, standard security measures have become insufficient. As the public sector becomes more digitized, the opportunities to target data, communications, and networks increase. To provide the public sector with cyber security at the highest level, G+D has a dedicated unit delivering a wide range of solutions and services.
The pressure on the public sector to deliver better services at lower costs through IT is immense. Externally, citizens now expect safe, convenient solutions like smart ID cards, user-friendly mobile apps, and online services.
Internally, IT departments increasingly have to provide widely accessible but safe new applications, particularly for payment processing, employee identification, workplace productivity, and the IoT. Whether a hospital, power plant, or welfare program, G+D has the know-how and experience to ensure public-service providers get the best possible protection.
