The year 2020 has tested government IT teams in ways none of us could have imagined. As agencies face the realities of a longer-term remote work environment, they are in need of tools and technologies that can continue to enable productivity and collaboration. As a result, these organizations are turning to applications to meet constituent demands and improve efficiencies across the enterprise. 

But these applications can come at a cost: If not managed properly, applications increase the potential attack surface and put an agency at risk of fraud and abuse. So what can agencies do to more effectively protect their information?

That's what host Constance Sayers, president of Government Executive Media Group and her guest Dan Woods, vice president at Shape Security, discuss on this episode of Industry Insights, a podcast for government leaders by industry leaders.
