With more government business conducted electronically, state and local agencies face rising threats and privacy concerns. The risk of data being compromised is greater than ever and can lead to huge liabilities, hefty fines, and bad press. Security for mission-critical applications involving tax information, medical records, electronic prescriptions, and other private and sensitive data is critical.
At NYSTEC, we understand that information security is a process that must be built in, not bolted on. Security must address threats with multiple layers of controls. It must be a continuous effort encompassing policy, process, procedure, education, monitoring, and enforcement.
Thanks to our in-depth experience with federal and state regulations and policies, NYSTEC is uniquely positioned to help you develop a layered security strategy that will increase the integrity, confidentiality, and availability of your IT systems.
Brief Remarks, NYS Senator Griffo and NYSTEC CEO, at a Central NY Cybersecurity Roundtable.
At a roundtable discussion with leaders from government, public safety, banking, and business on Cybersecurity: remarks provided by NYS District 47 Senator Joseph Griffo and NYSTEC President & CEO Mike Walsh.
A large New York State agency wanted to develop processes, tools, and documentation to classify its huge repositories of structured information (stored in data warehouses) and unstructured information (electronic files stored in file shares or paper form).
Working closely with the agency, NYSTEC created a data-classification toolkit that included identifying the appropriate controls to protect the agency’s information—from creation to cremation.
For more than 20 years, we have been helping agencies, organizations, institutions, and businesses with their information security concerns—working with them to improve their security posture and keep their data safe and secure.
