From the summary:
Citizens put a lot of trust in state governments to collect, maintain and protect the appropriate information necessary to execute their programs, protect individual rights, and ensure public safety. The volume of that information expands at an ever-increasing pace, and maintenance and protection of that information, particularly where it involves Personally Identifiable Information (PII) and Personal Health Information (PHI), becomes more and more challenging. According to findings of a recent survey conducted by Deloitte and the National Association of State Chief Information Officers (NASCIO), “State Governments at risk: A Call to Secure Citizen Data and Inspire Public Trust,” state governments, as custodians of the most comprehensive collection of citizens’ Personally Identifiable Information (PII), must make cybersecurity a top priority now.
