Core Security Principles for Edge Computing in Government
As government agencies become digitally transformed, they are incorporating more edge technology into their operations to help improve application performance and meet mission outcomes. An IDC survey indicates that 37% of U.S. federal agency decision makers have workloads deployed at the edge and 50% have firm plans to deploy workloads at the edge within this year. Edge is fast becoming the new frontier of innovation and responsiveness, making edge data management, processing, and protection central to any agency's digital processes and customer engagements.

WHITE HOUSE ACTION PLAN ON GLOBAL WATER SECURITY

whitePaper | June 1, 2022

The Biden-Harris Administration recognizes the critical role of sustainable water systems and the transformational power that water access has in the life of each person on earth. From its most basic role as the source of life to its advanced role in powering global economies, water matters. Still, its ubiquity in everyday life risks leading us to take it for granted — while global trends in population growth, urbanization, environmental degradation, deforestation, and climate change pose growing challenges to water security around the world. Here at home, water crises are becoming more frequent and intense. Historic droughts threaten our supply of water, and failing infrastructure and chronic underinvestment deprive our most vulnerable communities of safe drinking water. Lack of sanitation threatens public health, individual safety and dignity, equity, and the protection of freshwater resources; extreme weather events intensify these risks where improved sanitation is unavailable. As the source of both life and livelihoods, water security is central to human and national security.

FIDO for e-Government Services

whitePaper | December 13, 2022

The global COVID-19 pandemic closed offices and forced governments to rapidly move services online, if they weren’t already, to serve its citizens. Although usernames and passwords are easy to deploy and easy for citizens to use, they leave systems and users vulnerable to cyberattacks. They are especially vulnerable to phishing attacks designed to steal login credentials and compromise legacy multi-factor authentication (MFA) tools like those using one-time passwords (OTP) and push notifications. With phishing attacks on the rise, it is imperative for governments to support “phishing-resistant” MFA technology that is also accessible, efficient, and cost-effective.
