A recent report by PricewaterhouseCoopers states that the government has
greatly improved its use of security technology, but it still lags on
setting policies for using that technology and training employees about
Less than two of three government officials responding to the survey
said their organizations have an overall information security strategy
or centralized security information management process, and about half
don’t understand basic ideas such as risks to sensitive data.
Three-quarters of the public-sector respondents said their organizations
have people directly responsible for security, either as a chief
information security officer or chief security officer. Slightly more
than half of those respondents had those positions in 2006.
Meanwhile, organizations have made “wholesale, double-digit advances
across a wide range of security technologies, from prevention to
detection,” the PricewaterhouseCoopers report states. The gains came in
data encryption and areas such as reduced or single sign-ons and
centralized user data stores, the survey states.
