Forensic Analysis within the Public Sector
Forensic analysis audits, program information audits, and information system audits are key components of any agency’s strategy to manage and safeguard its confidential and programmatic content assets. Incorrectly tagged programmatic content assets, often mistagged internally, might provide a certain level of exposure, but programmatic and confidential assets stored outside the domain are far more damaging to a department or agency. All public sector agencies and departments suffer from this issue. The key is finding the information, and one that overcomes the major obstacle – an issue solved by Concept Searching.
The Concept Searching Difference
Identify granular information
Find information stored on diverse repositories and environments
Identify information that is missing, incomplete, or not aligned with policy
Sensitive information breaches are becoming all too common within the public sector. As the complexity of information systems increases, the DoD and public sector increasingly outsource information systems and management of content assets. This in itself gives rise to potential information assurance risks. Audits have become a way in which to identify, locate, and take action on information being managed in a noncompliant manner, to avoid breaches. The crux of the problem is the inability to find information that is missing, out-of-date, mistagged, or contains information that should be protected, such as security information or records. Concept Searching can solve this problem. If the information exists, Concept Searching technology will find it – before the audit to correct any issue that could be of concern.
