Loss of critical data and information continues to draw the attention of state, local, and education organizations because they know data loss erodes constituents’ trust. The National Association of State Chief Information Officers (NASCIO) latest annual State CIO Top 10 Priorities ranks “Cybersecurity and Risk Management” as the top concern in 2022, with a specific focus on governance, data protection, insider threats, and third-party risk. EDUCAUSE listed “developing processes and controls, institutional infrastructure, and institutional workforce skills to protect and secure data and supply-chain integrity” as its number-one IT issue for 2022.
Data is a strategic asset, and it is everywhere, so generating it is not the challenge. The challenge is how to derive value from the data to make more informed, insightful decisions.
Most government agencies have more data than they know what to do with. The amount of data that government agencies collect, store, analyze, share, and secure is increasing exponentially and will continue as more activities are carried out online and in digitally connected spaces. No matter your mission, as a government agency, data is your biggest asset but can also be your biggest challenge.
The pandemic has changed the way we talk about the “digital workplace”. As organizations look to a more modernized environment, it is often difficult to navigate the complexities of a hybrid physical and digital world. Gain insight to what our supplier partner, Iron Mountain, has learn about the digital transformation process along the way.
The words “digital workplace” mean something different today than they did a year or two ago.
We’ve all learned a lot this past year about what’s really essential when it comes to getting work done, whether that’s meeting the needs of customers or virtually connecting with co-workers. So, it’s safe to say our digital workplace initiatives are much more reality-driven.
Long after the pandemic, we’ll still be processing what we’ve learned. We’re not simply picking up the pieces and going back to “business as usual.” We’re going back to a different workplace. Learn how your organization can ensure digitization done right (now available through OMNIA Partners' cooperative contract with Iron Mountain).
