Securing remote state and local government workers everywhere
As the pandemic prolongs the need to enable a remote workforce, state and local governments must rethink how they secure access to resources wherever their employees are working. The need to pivot and refocus security strategies adds an important perspective to NASCIO’s 2020 list of top IT priorities that state CIOs were already addressing, including security, cloud and innovation through technology, says Palo Alto Networks' Matthew Schneider. “States have seen their networks go from a few hundred or thousand nodes, to 100,000 in a matter of weeks,” he says. Schneider explains how the shift from office cubicles to the home office has inverted security demands on the network in a new podcast. Sponsored by Palo Alto Networks.

Digital transformation and the importance of end-to-end visibility
The COVID-19 pandemic — while throwing the nation into crisis — also served as an accelerator for agencies to modernize how they interact with constituents and deliver services. “Everybody started to be affected by not just the pandemic and the virus, but how technology and data, and their interaction with it, made them successful or not,” says technical advisor, Juliana Vida. “More and more [decisions are] reliant on data. Those that are making decisions, those are that are deciding where the resources go, if they aren't really comfortable with looking at data and making best use of it across the entire agency … they're really at a disadvantage,” she says. Vida discusses the growing interest in data analytics, dashboards and graphs and why organization leaders should use this interest to push faster into that “data age." Sponsored by Splunk.

Managed services: Closing talent gaps in IT security
Shortages of talent continue to handicap the ability of state and local governments to keep up with growing security threats. The shift to a remote workforce has only expanded the daily onslaught of security threats just as agency leaders face looming budget pressures in the coming year. Government leaders are reconsidering the advantages of managed and professional service providers to bridge their skills gaps and maintain security operations at a lower overall cost. The skills gap is twofold problem for state agencies, explains Tanium's CTO, Gary Buonacorsi. “Retirements are taking a lot of institutional knowledge out the door. And then there is a competitive landscape around modern tool sets for security and infrastructure,” he says. Chris Novak from Verizon adds that working with managed services helps organizations get the best and broadest possible visibility of the threat landscape because they can correlate more data points and understand whether certain activity is anomalous.
