Challenges for public authorities

Public authorities want their citizens to trust them. This can be accomplished by providing citizens with the same level of convenience at the administrative level as they enjoy in their professional and private online communications. Public authorities are expected to handle the data entrusted to them with the utmost care.

Public authorities at all levels have already digitized numerous processes, have had to comply with high security demands, and have relied on political and organizational frameworks to accomplish both. However, consistent digitalization and the resulting process optimization can only be achieved when communication with citizens also happens on digital channels.

Nowadays, public authorities strengthen their connection to citizens by providing convenient, secure, and round-the-clock access to their services. This helps them save time, costs, and effort. Both internally at the administrative level and also for their customers, the citizens.

The data breach bogeyman

The sensitive personal data processed by public authorities is valuable. That makes public authority portals especially attractive for cybercriminals. And with inadequate protection, it also makes them an easy target. But a data breach could have catastrophic consequences: loss of trust, complicated cooperation with other public authorities, digital offers no longer used, heads will roll.

E-government portals are demanding

The topic of identity and access management plays a key role when it comes to accessing highly secure data. For example, when dealing with tax information, access should only be granted with adequate and strongly secure authentication measures.

At the same time, self-services are paramount on public administration portals: users have to be able to resolve standard problems, like resetting their passwords on their own. This makes it possible to minimize the burden placed on help desks.

There are additional demands at the governmental level: the starkly diverging needs of different public authorities have to be mapped out into one uniform security infrastructure. Furthermore, security demands are incredibly high in areas like law enforcement. And meeting these demands requires a tried and tested security solution.

What public authority customers expect

Despite pressure to keep costs low, citizens expect good service

In today’s world, everything is possible with just one click – around the clock. When dealing with public authorities, citizens expect the same high standards as in their private lives. They want to get a new license plate, submit a tax declaration, and register their children for school in the blink of an eye. They expect adequate protection of their personal data. On top of that, they place more value than ever on user-friendliness. To sacrifice it for security, or vice-versa, is therefore not an option
