Managing risk and reputation

Protecting systems to maintain public trust.

Governments deliver essential services, build major projects and hold personal data for virtually every Australian.

This work can involve high levels of risk in terms of finance (keeping to budgets); operations (managing compliance); security (safeguarding networks); and managing collaborations between multiple agencies.

At a time when the public sector is under more scrutiny than ever, governments must protect their systems and reputation to maintain public trust. To help ensure this, public-sector agencies can work with trusted partners that have proven strategies to mitigate risk.

It is also important that governments harness ICT to protect sensitive data (particularly given the rise of mobile devices), and ensure their operations are underpinned by secure infrastructure.

Governments must also have contingency plans to deal with natural disasters ensuring ongoing continuity of service and disaster recovery options to maintain control during these difficult times.
