Effective IA is critical to the sustainability and credibility of any enterprise – for Government, data compromise carries severe penalties; a high financial impact, constrained business effectiveness and damage to public perception.
As threats evolve and public awareness of the implications of loss of sensitive information increases, IA is increasingly important. Such a collective requirement creates a powerful argument for change under the spotlight of Public Sector Reform.
Thales UK Ltd, with British Telecommunications plc and Fujitsu, offer the UK Government a consortium with global reach and a deep understanding of the UK IA domain infrastructure, technologies and stakeholders.
