Having a comprehensive IT operating environment is one of the crucial factors in successfully implementing e-government.
Government activities are different from ordinary business activities because it has a bearing on the party and government departments, major systems and even the interests of the entire country.
Due to the high sensitivity in governmental information, the usage of e-government to exchange information and services with citizens, businesses, and other arms of government in today’s world, is also required to be highly secured.
Therefore, the availability of IT security needs to permeate the entire e-government structure.
Ensuring high IT security in the e-government platform is a complex issue. IT security solutions must take into account the needs and characteristics of the actual application as well as ensuring it being reliable, practical and implementable. All these security measures require a step-by-step, phased introduction in order to guarantee a smooth progress of the project.
