Agencies are dealing with an exponential growth of data. But size isn’t the only problem. It’s where that data lives and how it travels between the private clouds, public clouds, and back to on-premises.
How do you protect, secure, and backup that data? How can your agency protect the right data and invest only in what is important to the mission, without creating a new set of data silos, incurring hidden storage costs, stalling developers, and introducing greater compliance risk?
CAD files are highly valued and frequently shared and exchanged. But CAD files often contain confidential information and IP which can have legal data protection obligations. To protect these files collaborators may use email encryption programs, network file share access control, secure file transfer protocol, mobile device management, enterprise and cloud-based content management, and so on.
Insider threats and the misuse of data stored in the cloud has long been a concern for agency and IT leaders. But what remains clear, according to a new survey by the Cloud Security Alliance (CSA), is that there is clear lack of procedure for dealing with these instances in cloud computing.
Net-centric and data-centric warfare is transforming how warfighters conduct operations. Data from satellite feeds, remote sensors, ship manifests, etc. depend on secure and quality data to inform intelligence-based decision-making.
Cloud computing has made collecting, storing, and processing data easier and cheaper than ever. Agencies are increasingly leveraging big data to drive actionable insights and improve cyber threat detection. Furthermore, more than 60% of agencies are using big data to reduce costs and operating expenses, writes Information Week.
New standards and technologies in the Information Age have given architecture, engineering and construction (AEC) firms both new benefits and challenges. For instance, when the General Services Administration mandated that all government projects must be designed electronically using building information modeling (BIM), the industry began experiencing a number of benefits in building quality. However, the same standard means that significantly higher volumes of electronic data is now created and must be managed.
