You are working with the press office of a newly elected government official
You are working with the press office of a newly elected government official. The press office asked you to prepare a three to five paragraph briefing statement (summary introduction) for a post-election question to the winning candidate:
How will your administration ensure that Digital Government services are secure?
This question can be asked of any winning candidate (federal, state, or local) that will oversee a government organization offering digital government services (you should not address any single candidate or party).
Your briefing statement must provide enough information that the winning candidate understands key terms as defined by you for the press question:
What is meant by “Digital Government services?” (previously called “e-Government” services)
Where have past administrations fallen short in protecting Digital Government / e-Government services?
What is meant by “Threats” (i.e. individual hackers, politically motivated hacktivists, criminal enterprises, and unfriendly “nation state” actors)
