Public Sector

What's happening in Public Sector?

Government organizations spend millions on the physical destruction and repurchase of data containing equipment. There are data protection and privacy laws set in place for organizations, companies and business to follow in order to protect private information.

Some of the laws include HIPPA, CFAA, GLBA, and FACTA. HIPPA is a privacy rule that protects patient health information. The Computer Fraud and Abuse Act (CFAA) criminalizes the act of intentionally accessing a protected computer without authorization. The Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act (GLBA) requires financial institutions to protect their clients’ private information. The Fair and Accurate Credit Transactions Act (FACTA) regulates how businesses protect credit-related records.

 

Operations risks

Public sectors hold large quantities of confidential information, if proper data destruction does not take place, then private information is vulnerable to data breaches, identity theft, and non-compliance penalties. There are data protection laws with strict regulations; if a public sector does not comply this can result in fines, a damaged reputation and data vulnerability.
