Part two on GovSense for Cybersecurity: Cybersecurity threats are moving at the speed of light.
Let “The True-Cloud” do the work for you. Even the basic process of backing up data is more affordable in the cloud and gives you data redundancy for recovery purposes. These security costs are spread across a number of cloud customers. While we are proud to state that GovSense is the first unified, true-cloud software system designed specifically for local government, we also know that along with some bragging rights comes the responsibility to educate and make sure our customers, potential customers and our own systems are protected.
Let’s look at a few of the specifics of how the GovSense software solution provides enterprise-class data management, security and availability that helps ensure your jurisdiction is resilient to security breaches. GovSense provides the cloud infrastructure so that you can run all your necessary applications in the cloud with complete confidence.
Crisis Management — All production data is stored immediately to redundant locations. “Hot backups” can restore your data rapidly and reliably. Extensive disaster recovery documents ensure crisis management is handled promptly and without fanfare.
Application Security — Advanced functionality secures the application including role-based access, strong encryption, robust password policies and more.
Operational Security — Stringent round-the-clock monitoring tools, controls and policies and a dedicated tenured security team ensure the strongest security for customers.
Data Management — Data management policies and infrastructure provide you with the peace of mind of knowing that your data is completely replicated, backed up and available whenever you need it. You enjoy reduced risk with enterprise-class data management processes and policies. Multiple levels of redundancy ensure you get continuous access to your data, and replication and synchronization across data centers provide you with the utmost disaster recovery confidence.
Availability — GovSense’s redundant infrastructure enables it to provide world-class uptime, including during upgrades, averaging 99.96%.
A reluctance on the part of affected jurisdictions to talk about the extent of their attacks prevents us from knowing the whole story and, thus, uncovering the true source and conduit for the incidents. One thing is certain, however. These data raids are coming at the speed of light and from every corner of the globe. We can’t overemphasize the sense of urgency you and everyone at your jurisdiction, no matter their role, should have to move your systems to the true-cloud to mitigate the impact a cyber attack will have on your data.
All the resources — both staff hours and budget dollars — that your jurisdiction has invested in on-premise or fake-cloud software will be wasted with just one instance of an illicit hack of your computer systems. You originally made technology investments to operate faster, provide automated services to your citizens, enhance inter-departmental collaboration and improve financial accuracy. One data security strike will bring all of this to a screeching halt. And you’ll have your constituents to answer to.
GovSense staff have years of experience with cloud technology and, in addition to the overall land and financial management benefits of the solution, we can be a ready source of expert information for understanding your vulnerabilities to cyber attack.
