The following is an excerpt from the full data sheet.
The Keylight Platform enables public sector agencies to gain better visibility into the policies they must follow, the risks they must manage, and the incidents they must address.
Imagine you work for a federal agency that was hacked, resulting in thousands of compromised Social Security numbers. Or perhaps you work for a city whose water supply is unsafe to drink for an extended period. Maybe your county government department missed a compliance deadline for a federal mandate, which the local press is now criticizing you for.
During the aftermath of a crisis, the emphasis is on minimizing the damage and restoring public trust. Once the dust settles, risk management thinking usually takes over. The question then becomes: Can we prevent this from happening again?
Effective risk management and compliance management require information that is complete, readily accessible, and usable, to enable quick decision-making instead of impeding it. Unfortunately, information in most organizations is maintained in disparate systems and/or spreadsheets, and managed by a variety of sources (e.g., departments). As a result, it often is outdated, hidden in nondescript network folders, and/or missing key data fields.
Minimize violations with efficient compliance and risk management
The optimal way to handle disruptive incidents is to:
- Comply with the regulations designed to prevent them
- Recognize and manage the risk of them occurring before they happen
Unfortunately, this is not always a realistic goal for government agencies that are saddled with outdated technology and fewer staff resources than in previous years. Further complicating these efforts are the abundance of compliance requirements and shifting regulations the typical agency faces.
