Cybersecurity Public Services

Protecting the public trust

Critical public services such as energy and utilities, transportation, logistics, oil and gas production, and government operations face a growing number of digital threats every day— from both domestic and international bad actors. As public service institutions use digital technologies to deliver experience-oriented services, they face the challenging task of adopting robust security measures and the right cybersecurity solutions. They also need to keep up with changing and stringent security regulations and compliance requirements.

Our Identity and Access Management Services, Data Security and Data Privacy Services, Infra and Cloud Security services, Governance and Risk Compliance and 360-degree OT Services offers comprehensive end-to-end security.

Through our Dynamic Cybersecurity framework and leveraging next-gen security technologies, we also enable a safer and more stable digital ecosystem in public institutions.

Key challenges

Control Access to Confidential Data
Control access to confidential data
Energy & Utilities and Oil & Gas institutions engaged in public operations possess vast amounts of highly sensitive and private citizen data and access to this data needs to be secure and controlled to prevent digital attacks such as phishing or brand impersonation.

HCLTech’s Data Security and Data Privacy Services take a four-fold approach that protects public sector organizations against risks from third-party access and internal breaches.

Phishing, Social Engineering, and Other Cyber Crimes

Public sector workers are highly susceptible to socially engineered hacks, phishing, and other cyber threats that can jeopardize critical digital infrastructure and lead to data breaches.

HCLTech’s Infrastructure and Cloud Security Solution ensures comprehensive cloud security for public sector firms by managing security technologies, dynamically securing multiple clouds, detecting and responding to threats, and placing resilient firewalls at every digital touch point.

Inadequate security measures within the IT and OT systems can lead to devastating ransomware or other targeted cyber-attacks that disrupt critical operations such as national security and essential public services. This can lead to severe social and economic costs for public institutions with a long-lasting impact.
