Delivering Bespoke IT Support for the Public Sector
The public sector is responsible for bringing a variety of services to the population. Therefore functionality, accessibility, security, sustainability and user experience are at the forefront of public sector employees minds when investing in new technology. Governments need to spend wisely to ensure that any digital transformation initiative brings value to end-users, protects public information and is strategically aligned to broader business objectives.
At Conosco our IT services for the public sector spans:

Driving public sector efficiency in the cloud
Navigating cloud technologies can be daunting. It requires a very specific skillset to architect a cloud infrastructure and migrate an organisations environment successfully. In the public sector, there may not be the expertise in house meaning legacy on-premise infrastructure remains in place.
Migrating to the cloud offers multiple benefits including unlimited storage capacity, affordable and flexible services, scalability and accessibility. Conosco’s strategy consultants and cloud engineers have the expertise and accreditations to migrate your business to the cloud and deliver cloud computing helping you to tailor your applications and services. Building on our strong partnerships with leading providers such as Microsoft Azure, AWS and G-Suite, Conosco recently achieved four Gold Competencies from Microsoft demonstrating our commitment and expertise in providing cloud technologies.

Information Security Solutions
The public sector is driven by data. Whether you work in education, housing or for the NHS, data is integral to the success of public sector services. From capture to processing and storage, protecting the integrity of the public’s sensitive information is essential.
We offer a range of Information Security Solutions that help public sector organisations manage their data, ensure their systems are secure and quickly mitigate risk. Vulnerability Assessments enable us to analyse every part of your IT environment identifying any gaps in your defences, whilst our Virtual CISO and Security Operations Centre (SOC) will give you the guidance, support and assurance that your data is protected.
Digital Transformation Consultancy
The public sector is often under pressure to tighten its budget and account for any spend. Investing in new technology just because it is the latest trend is not a luxury the government sector has. However, failure to innovate can often be more damaging to a business’s bottom line. As legacy systems begin to break more resource, time and money are spent fixing issues. Getting the balance between investing in new technology and maximising the use of existing systems is key.
Conosco’s digital transformation consultants will give your business the strategic advice and C-level leadership to make informed decisions about IT spend. Before we undertake any innovation project we’ll ensure that the new technology aligns with your business objectives and has the functionality to meet departmental goals. Getting stakeholder buy-in is one thing, getting employees to adopt new technology is another.
Cyber Security Solutions
Malicious attacks such as ransomware and phishing emails are on the rise. The large volumes of data processed by the public sector and the vulnerabilities presented by legacy systems make them a prime target for cyber criminals.
Conosco is ISO 27001 and Cyber Essentials certified and we also offer clients the consultancy and auditing services to help them achieve these accreditations too. We adhere to the latest security and compliance best practices and have the expertise to provide the public sector with security consultancy and technology solutions to improve their cyber hygiene. Many organisations utilise our managed SIEM service to monitor their systems and alert them of suspicious activity. We then ensure a fast response to any threats minimising the impact on the business.
