Webinar: Data in the public sector – security and stewardship in 2021 and beyond

The civil service faces an immense challenge when it comes handling its data. Poor quality, inconsistent sources, and just the sheer volume of data incurs high management costs. And while the fast, free-flowing exchange of information is vital for successful operations, the variety of sharing channels available to civil servants, and the frequency at which they use them, means the risk of data loss is pervasive.

The challenges of the past year have only served to exacerbate the situation. If the data perimeter was perilously porous when most civil servants worked in offices, then the pivot to remote working has only served to add concerning new dimensions that directly affect the most problematic element of the data security stack: the human layer.

In this webinar, our expert panel discusses the most pressing issues around public sector data management, and will review results of recent research revealing the true extent of data loss incidents.

  • How to consolidate and track data from different sources
  • The impact of blurred work-life boundaries on data security
  • The rise of phishing and ransomware campaigns
  • Factors that increase the risk of data loss in the public sector
  • The costs and consequences of poor data management
