Creating More Responsive Government Organizations

whitePaper | April 13, 2020

Like many state governments, South Dakota has a large workforce. Managing payroll and benefits for 18,000 current employees and retirees is no easy task, and paper-based processes made it more complex and inefficient. South Dakota needed to move away from manual processes where employees submitted paper forms to HR personnel, who then re-entered the information into a database. State leaders wanted to transition to self-service tools that let employees do things like change their direct deposit information, update their tax withholding and provide a new address — all in just a few clicks.

U.S. Trade in Services: Trends and Policy Issues

whitePaper | January 22, 2020

Trade in “services” refers to a wide and growing range of economic activities. These activities include transport, tourism, financial services, use of intellectual property, telecommunications and information services, government services, maintenance, and other professional services from accounting to legal services. Compared to goods, the types and volume of services that can be traded are limited by factors such as the requirement for direct buyer-provider contact, and other unique characteristics such as the reusability of services (e.g., professional consulting) for which traditional value measures do not account. In addition to services as independent exports, manufactured and agricultural products incorporate and depend on services, such as research and development or shipping of intermediate or final goods. As services account for 71% of U.S. employment, U.S. trade in services, both services as exports and as inputs to other exported products, can have a broad impact across the U.S. economy.

whitePaper | December 17, 2019

Moving systems to the cloud, introducing mobile devices into the workforce, investing in smart city projects and undergoing other modernization efforts can introduce risk if agencies can't sufficiently protect their data. According to a recent survey, 92 percent of government respondents will use sensitive data in an advanced technology within the year, yet 96 percent consider themselves "vulnerable."

The Impact of the Trump Labor Market on Historically Disadvantaged Americans

whitePaper | December 19, 2019

The U.S. labor market is the strongest it has been in the last half century, as shown by economic data across various metrics. This is partly attributable to President Trump’s progrowth economic policies, the results of which are disproportionately benefiting Americans who were previously left behind. The Administration’s policies are boosting labor demand and lowering structural barriers to entering the labor market. This report provides evidence that this labor market has contributed to reduced inequality through an economic boom that is greatly benefiting historically disadvantaged groups. These groups are becoming more and more self-reliant through their economic activity, rather than remaining inactive in the labor market to qualify for means-tested government programs.

Customer Chronicles — Securing State and Local Government Agencies with Strong MFA

whitePaper | February 3, 2020

Protecting sensitive data and maintaining cybersecurity hygiene are top concerns for security professionals and CISOs from state and local government agencies. Government networks contain sensitive data such as social security numbers, voter registration, medical records, bank account and credit card numbers of millions of people and businesses, which can make them an attractive target for bad actors. With the increasing sophistication of cyberattacks and the lack of resources at their disposal, the IT departments across these agencies are looking for a solution that enables them to do more with less. We built Duo to be a simple, affordable and secure solution to help government agencies – and organizations of all sizes – solve to these problems.

Security Clearances for Contractors and Government Employees

whitePaper | January 29, 2020

Individual government contractors face more rigorous scrutiny, as private companies can monitor employee’s social media as part of their continuous vetting and insider threat protocols. However, despite the existence of a directive permitting them to do so, government agencies do not monitor their employees’ social media. Our interviews found this is due to a lack of clear guidance on how to implement the existing directives and security policies. This shortcoming can be remedied by government agencies agreeing upon a single common standard regarding the use of publicly available electronic information, specifically social media, for personnel security and insider threat purposes. The DNI, as Security Executive Agent for the government, must then develop guidelines for the implementation of this standard throughout the sector.
