Digital Public Services

We apply our digital transformation know-how to public administration

Overview

Solutions based on simplicity, transparency, speed, and security

GMV’s proposal adapts to the different areas of public administration: National government, subordinate agencies of the public administration, regional administrations, local administrations, and universities. All of them have shared interests, but unique specific situations, requiring different projects to adapt to each of their needs.

  •  Improving communication with the public through a multichannel setup.

Creative solutions for new needs

  • Rollout of new, quicker, automated, and integrated software architectures.
  • Evolution of traditional architectures towards hybrid cloud-based virtualization solutions.
  • Monitoring and optimization of application performance.
  • Provision of cyberprotection controls at the infrastructure, data, and source code level.

Key in development enhancements

  • Guaranteed privacy and data integrity in accordance with GDPR and ENS. Preparation of adaptation plans and compliance audits.
  • Development of information architectures based on reuse. Definition of data layouts that enable improved interoperability.

Essential for guaranteeing trust

  • Management of cybersecurity in the entity, monitoring and providing an immediate response to cybersecurity incidents.
  • Increasing visibility in the organization to improve incident detection.
  • Providing solutions that suit the entity, adapting to the situation and working methods.

Although tourism companies were already showing a high level of technological implementation, the pandemic and the new situation it has created have led to an acceleration of the industry’s digitalization process, with the aim of improving convenience, security, and confidence for customers.

This trend has led to the introduction of touchless or “zero contact” solutions, such as online check‑in/check‑out and doors that open automatically. One key aspect of this process has been the development of applications using technologies based on big data and artificial intelligence, such as machine vision that can be used to identify individuals, calculate capacities and personal distances, detect the use of masks, measure body temperatures, etc. This information is then used to generate a heat map to determine who has been in particular area of a hotel.

The main risks that tourism companies are facing are those that can affect apps, remote access, and Wi‑Fi systems, potentially leading to theft of sensitive data or information. Some of the most common problems include malware campaigns, especially those focused on phishing, with theft of customer data in the form of credit card numbers, loyalty program information, and personal data. It is also worth emphasizing that ransomware was one of the primary threats during the past year.

For any company, a cyberattack can present not only the risk of a major financial impact, but it can also cause reputational harm and even loss of customers.

Every company needs a good strategy that can ensure that its systems and infrastructure are protected. This can be done through a series of measures such as penetration testing (pentesting), secure Wi‑Fi, network perimeter security, data protection, secure cloud access, security by design (SecDevOps), and security diagnostics that can provide an early warning for potential threats.

In many cases, employees with a lack of awareness and training on the subject of security can act as a gateway for a wide range of cyberattacks.

However, having an awareness-raising plan can reduce the possibility that a company’s employees will permit a malware incident by up to 90%. This is achieved through a four‑step program:

  • Simulated phishing to analyze the probability of success for a real attack (Assess)
  • Interactive training modules (Educate)
  • A tool for reporting phishing incidents (Reinforce)
  • Reporting on results (Measure)

One way to provide the expert knowledge an organization needs is through what is known as CISO as a Service, which can also provide the effort required for proper execution during specific peaks in demand.

The use of Robotic Process Automation (RPA) has also become an indispensable part of the tourism industry’s digital transformation.

The ability to automate routine administrative procedures, such as taking reservations, recording passenger names, validating information, and managing returns and refunds, can have a direct impact not only in terms of saving time that would otherwise be dedicated to these tasks, but also by reducing human error and improving the customer experience. Employees can focus their attention on providing value to the customers, while letting the bots handle the preliminary data work.
