The “Energy State” was named by the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) as first of 11 states in the Mountain West and Pacific Northwest regions for Developable Nameplate Wind Power Production by Class. That’s something. Focus on Wind Energy Wind and ambient air Wyoming’s wind resource can offer great renewable energy opportunities for data centers. With areas of the state ranking as Superb Resource Potential by the National Renewable Energy Laboratories (NREL), Wyoming is one of the most favorable locations forwind power development in the country.

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.

Shift Left API Security Testing for Government Agencies

whitePaper | September 7, 2022

Application programming interfaces, or APIs, enable government agencies to seamlessly share data across federal, state, and local levels. They are quite frankly the glue that allows agencies to deliver services to mission partners, civilians, and even disabled veterans. Similar to how retailers create personalized experiences by integrating location, inventory, and payment data, government agencies also create contextual experiences for constituents and personnel by leveraging APIs. The impact of APIs can be seen across all major sectors of government, including traffic and transportation management, utilities, healthcare, social services, agriculture, as well as law enforcement. With the seamless connection between datasets and agencies, government personnel are able to innovate faster and drive speed to mission. How exactly? APIs reduce the workload and redundant operations performed by developers by allowing them to access data stored elsewhere. This enables them to quickly execute on tasks and take on more important projects of greater impact.
