The government and public sector handle the world’s most sensitive data, from citizens’ financial data to classified and restricted records. This work was never simple. Public sector data security is harder but more important as data breaches, hacking methods, and cyber threats evolve.

This blog will discuss the main challenges to data security in the government and public sector. We’ll show how a good test automation plan can protect against cyberattacks and meet institutional requirements. We will also showcase why Provar Automation is the best test automation solution for ironclad data security.

Challenges to Data Security in the Government/Public Sector

Government and public sector organizations face a myriad of obstacles in keeping their data secure, including:

  • Safeguarding vast amounts of sensitive information against unauthorized access and cyber threats
  • Adhering to strict regulations, including GDPR and HIPPA, risking penalties, security breaches, and loss of public trust for non-compliance
  • Allowing necessary access across diverse departments and roles while ensuring robust data security
  • Staying ahead of increasingly sophisticated cybersecurity attacks and evolving as cybersecurity threats continue to evolve becomes increasingly difficult. For example, it becomes increasingly difficult to anticipate sophisticated attacks against government agencies or data breaches.
  • Ensuring the security of integration points across external applications and platforms, especially as systems grow increasingly complex
