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.”
