As government moves increasingly to the cloud, agencies are racing to meet accelerated demand for new applications and modernize existing capabilities. As a result, application components, source code and even access methods have changed significantly in order to function within a modern cloud architecture. That makes protecting application data, especially Personally Identifiable Information (PII) and health data, even more critical. In this evolving environment, data security has to be a priority.
Emerging applications can come too quickly for agencies to apply adequate protections. The pace of development, coupled with labor-intensive security checks, increase the possibility that something is going to slip through the cracks.
