Public Sector

Public Sector Information Systems constantly collect, catalog and utilize data collected from the millions of people that live within their jurisdiction. They operate at different levels, micro to macro, viz., county, city, state and federal. This classification is not ideal because some information which is collected at the county level has significant implications for the policies developed at the state and federal levels. There is a lot of overlap among the data that is collected by each level of public entities but the innumerable statutes, regulations and rules governing the collection and use of data highly circumscribe the sharing of data. These entities undertake massive information gathering efforts to meet their specialized needs.Sophisticated systems are needed to process the collected information into data that could facilitate decision making.

The spectacular increase in the public investment in IT infrastructure shows the importance of IT in public governance. These entities are forever exploring whether networking could create new flexibilities in the ways that information is captured and deployed.

The perpetual efforts to substantially increase effectiveness and efficiency in the delivery of public services, the management of critical information sources for decision making and the formulation of public policy encourage the public bodies to explore ways to achieve full exploitation of existing information systems and implement new management information systems.

In short, IT has become the vehicle from which accurate, reliable, and timely information is produced for identifying objectives, improving productivity, and facilitating service delivery.

Now, more than ever in the history of mankind, security is of singular importance.

Every piece of existing legislation is either revisited or tested on the touchstone of security implications. Fresh regulations are designed so that they address these security issues and help to increase the safety of each system.
