Increasingly sophisticated and well-coordinated cybersecurity attacks on large-scale industrial operations have grabbed the headlines.

Particularly when working with third-party software providers or vendors, it’s important to build the groundwork for safe government transactions. At Granicus, we base our approach to cybersecurity on four pillars of operational, cultural and product-based security that enable digital government to thrive by building trust with residents.
