Governments have never suffered from a lack of data. In fact, one could argue that, historically, they have suffered from an excess of data, much of which was rarely used. Governments are using computer technology to capture and harvest this data and extract value from it. However, more can be done to apply it to agency missions. This paper explains data-driven government and challenges related to it and outlines a way forward in the journey to a data-driven government.
Whether they are part of a business or working for a government organization, today’s investigators, security specialists and intelligence analysts are facing extraordinary pressure to respond quickly to a wide range of threats — from cyber attacks, terrorist threats, criminality, and unethical and immoral activities. These attacks are especially challenging as societies are increasing their reliance on cyberspace for economic growth, societal well-being, government operations and critical infrastructure monitoring and management. Concurrent with the increase in cyberspace reliance is an increase in cyberspace vulnerability.
