Data Privacy & Compliance

eGovernment initiatives have transformed the public sector of many countries – enhancing and improving the lives of citizens by delivering quality public services resulting in increased user trust, accelerated service delivery and seamless access to information.

A large volume of electronic data is travelling across to third parties, which at times could be numerous transfers down a supply chain. Such supply chains could be individuals or companies (third party suppliers) that provide external services such as hosting, outsourced billing, electoral role services, regulators and research. Governments are faced with unprecedented risk with a requirement to build security into the entire digital estate – across multiple devices, networks and infrastructures.

Cryptography plays a major role in the implementation of secure systems: confidentiality, integrity and authentication.

Efficient and transparent digital public services that are cross-border and interoperable by default, trustworthy and secure – replacing paper-based services with online transactions.

Applications for Safe Digital Processes

Public Key Infrastructure (PKI)

PKI ensures confidentiality, integrity, authenticity and non-repudiation of sensitive information. Encrypting data at rest and in transit guards it against theft or tampering, and guarantees that digital identity provides secure authentication of users and applications to protect against fraud.

Post Quantum Crypto Agility (Future Proofs and PQC)

At this time, no quantum computer can run quantum algorithms, however once they are able to, these computers will decimate the security infrastructure of the digital economy. Post-quantum crypto-agility is a necessity for the eGovernment infrastructure to be able to evolve in the advent of a new generation of attacks and consequently evolving cryptographic standards and algorithms.
