IDC MaturityScape: IT Security in Government
This IDC study describes the IDC MaturityScape framework for IT security in government, which identifies the stages, dimensions, outcomes, and actions required for government agencies and programs to effectively develop the security maturity needed to protect government information in the new era of the 3rd Platform and the resulting security threats. The IDC MaturityScape for IT security in government provides CIOs, CISOs, CTOs, line-of-business leaders, functional leaders, and other senior and political leaders with insights that will help their organization survive in the new environment."Government agencies are key targets for hackers and others and spend significant amounts on IT and cybersecurity but yet the breaches continue," said Alan Webber, research director for National Security in IDC Government Insights. "Government agencies need to focus on increasing their organizational IT security maturity that will reduce the attack surface with the resources they have."
