Anyone can tell you that security is important these days but this is especially true for the federal government. With security standards constantly evolving to keep up with required mandates and ever-increasing cyber threats, the federal government having confidence in secure technology in order to accomplish missions is more important now than ever. LG is more than an electronics company, it’s a solutions company. Through providing technology, supporting the secure supply chain, and using the power of partnership, LG is bringing a variety of security solutions to market.
What role does hardware play in the security space? Well, a big one. If a computer or any digitally connected device is hackable, then it’s important to have the ability to lock it down and make sure it’s secure from data breaches. LG offers a wide range of endpoints suited to any environment in which security is required:
- Non-Wi-Fi series – removes vulnerability, decreases the risk of hackers and protects sensitive data and information being reviewed in SCIF and SCIF-like environments that require minimal risk of interference or interception
- Digital displays – including video walls, high brightness and interactive capabilities for command and control, conferencing, secure meeting and training environments
- Medical displays – including surgical monitors, digital X-ray detectors, and clinical review monitors for our federal medical personnel
- Cloud VDI Endpoint devices – a necessity in the day of cloud computing and storage that enables centralized device maintenance to securely work from home
Supporting the Secure Supply Chain
LG is one of only 11,400 certified partners spanning the breadth of the trade community in the CTPAT program (Customs Trade Partnership Against Terrorism). Customs Trade Partnership Against Terrorism (CTPAT) is but one layer in U.S. Customs and Border Protection’s (CBP) multi-layered cargo enforcement strategy and through this program, CBP works with the trade community to strengthen international supply chains and improve United States border security.
LG is committed to working with CBP to protect the supply chain, identify security gaps and implement specific security measures and best practices. As part of this voluntary but rigorous program, LG addresses a broad range of security topics to align security throughout the supply chain.
The Power of Partnership
To provide such a suite of security, having the right partners that understand the requirements to make this happen is paramount to LG. With a strong network of 142 global operations, LG partners with suppliers who meet stringent DFAR and FAR regulations, including NDAA Section 889, while ensuring their products maintain the standard of quality that is required in today’s digitally collaborative world. Value-add solutions providers help to bring the hardware and software to both commercial and federal markets, and specialized market and application consultants assist federal customers with any resource gaps or optimization. Working together allows for a strong offering for federal government personnel that helps allow them to accomplish their mission, maintain security and keep the public safe.
