Wizuda signs contract with An Garda Siochana

Wizuda has signed a new contract with An Garda Síochána to upgrade and transform its digital systems.  It’s all part of an Garda Síochána’s ‘CONNECT’ Digital Strategy 2019-2023. This strategy ensures that information and communications technology will continue to support and transform An Garda Síochána’s capabilities in areas such as crime prevention, investigation and detection, supporting victims of crime, and protecting vulnerable members of society.

The Wizuda data transfer software will empower An Garda Síochána to securely manage and transfer data using the latest encryption and data protection technologies.

Making the announcement, Managing Director of Wizuda Danielle Cussen said:

“An Garda Siochána provides a vital service to thousands of people across the country. The Gardaí send and receive large quantities of very important and often highly sensitive data every day. Securing and managing the flow of data from a GDPR compliance and security perspective is a high priority of theirs and we are delighted that the Wizuda software will play a key role in their digital transformation journey.”

Commercial Director of Wizuda Mike Ross said Wizuda has seen a surge in demand from other public sector bodies looking to upgrade their data transfer systems.

“The size of the digital transformation market has exploded in recent years– driven largely by organisational needs to serve changing customer preferences, security and enhance operational efficiency. Many public sector organisations need to transfer highly sensitive data to external parties on a regular basis. It’s a core operational business process and therefore it is inevitable that public sector bodies are now tackling the challenge of creating a smarter system, driven by digital.”

Head of Digital Services and Innovation at An Garda Síochána Tim Willoughby added:

“Thanks to the software provided by Wizuda, our data transfers and file sharing processes will be managed through a centralised hub giving us full real-time visibility, control and security of all data flows. This makes it safer and quicker for us to turn data into information and information into insights. This is a part of our digital transformation process for community safety nationwide.”

the challenge - wizuda case studies

The board of a multinational medical device organisation required a secure, cloud-based solution which facilitated virtual board member collaboration on key documents in preparation for monthly board meetings.

The documentation was regularly of a highly commercially sensitive nature, largely relating to ongoing clinical trials, and as such demanded a secure and encrypted platform which could be implemented without the engagement of internal IT resources.

Key challenges that need to be  considered:

  • Geographically dispersed stakeholders
  • Highly commercially sensitive documentation
  • No internal IT involvement
  • Multiple stakeholders required to collaborate on
    single documents

Wizuda MFT gave them a centralised view of all their file transfer activities and a network overview of the data flows. IT now had instantly available reporting and could provide geographic maps and network overviews to senior management of all file transfer activities in the organisation. These could also be categorised in ways that made sense for the business from a priorities perspective. Wizuda’s unique ‘Health Check’ dashboard with automated monitoring and alerts, allowed them to manage all transfer operations proactively and ensured they were always on top of any issues.

From a GDPR compliance perspective, transfers could be linked to Data Protection Impact Assessments were required and data could be anonymised as part of the transfer process. Wizuda MFT enabled them to apply the latest security protocols for file transfers and encrypt data at rest and in transit. Passing cyber-security and GDPR compliance audits became a lot easier.
