The Digital Transformation of Public Services will fail unless Cyber Security is at its core
Cyber security must be at the heart of the public services digital agenda and must be seen as a necessary barrier against real and active threats. It needs to be actively implemented at people, process and technology levels. It needs to be embedded in the mindset of all parts of the public sector for digitalisation to work.
Change in that space is very highly vulnerable to ambiguity: It starts with a clear vision coming from the top that must be relayed without fail at all levels. All actors in the public sector digital transformation sphere must place cyber security at the heart of each and every public communication they make. Those who think it might “scare people” are just in denial about the reality of the threats and the impact they can have. It is only at this price that the digital transformation will be successful at the pace the Government is marking.
