Government Organizations

Government and local authorities have an enormous responsibility, not only in relation to the decisions they adopt, but also to protect the security of important government projects and citizens' personal data.
Establishing a comprehensive information security system is an important priority in the creation of a quality IT infrastructure in such organizations.
InfoWatch solutions offer an indispensable tool for modern organizations that understand the importance of using new approaches and IT solutions to manage their reputation and protect valuable information in today's information environment.

Legislation relating to the protection of personal data is constantly being expanded and improved. Government authorities are among the first to seek to ensure full compliance with legislation governing the need to protect personal data throughout its lifecycle.

The human factor and a low level of computer literacy is a primary factor in the majority of cases of accidental violations of information security policy, attracting serious consequences for employees and managers. Confidential and secret information about government projects can fall into the hands of criminals and lead to speculation about the facts, thus aggravating the political situation.

In addition to this, major risks are hiding behind instances of publication of confidential data in the media, leading to great public outcry. Therefore, rather than smoothing over the negative consequences of such incidents, it is more important to deal with the source of the problem – to conduct a thorough employee education program and employ technical means to ensure that working instructions are carried out in practice.

InfoWatch solutions help to prevent confidential information from leaving the organization, and where information falls into the hands of the media, they can help you to manage an efficient campaign to reduce the public outcry and mitigate the consequences of the incident.

It is no secret that social media – social networks, blogs and microblogs, forums, communities and video-sharing sites – have become an integral part of modern life. This is where people share their impressions, discuss personal and community events, plans and intentions.

Monitoring and analysis of posts on social media provides an overview of the current mood in a community and citizens' perceptions of the activity of government organizations. Such information is essential, both for improving the efficiency of government authorities and for monitoring information security within government.

Knowledge of what is happening on the Internet provides an opportunity to forecast how events will develop, to take the right decisions, and to work immediately to suppress any early signs of potential conflict or conditions that might lead to an increase in extremism or the escalation of crisis situations, and that might move from the pages of an Internet community onto city streets.
