Analysis of Trends in Cybersecurity Across Federal, State, and Local Agencies
This IDC Tech Buyer Presentation examines the results of IDC Government Insights' 2022 Buyer Intelligence Survey. In January 2022, IDC Government Insights conducted a large-scale survey of U.S. government IT decision makers. The study was designed to get a detailed understanding of the drivers of buyer behavior for cybersecurity services, data management and analytics, and digital services.
This study is an initial analysis of the cybersecurity responses across all levels of government for the purpose of understanding key differences in the buyer journey between federal, state, and local government organizations.
"Cybersecurity is becoming more important to U.S. government agencies as the threat landscape continues to broaden and the sophistication of criminal actors matures. Cybersecurity solutions are critical to trusted service delivery. IDC believes that effective cybersecurity optimizes government service delivery by proactively securing citizen and government data," said Alison Brooks, research vice president, Smart Cities and Communities — Public Safety.
"IDC Government Insights' Buyer Intelligence Survey is designed to help technology suppliers and government technology buyers, decision makers, procurement officers, and policy makers devise strategies and policies that maximize technology benefits, enable government to protect and service the public, and support sound investment decisions," said Ruthbea Yesner, VP, IDC Government Insights and Smart Cities.
