Cybersecurity is not optional
Now, more than ever, public sector organizations are under various forms of cyberattacks. For people who work in government IT, the task of keeping government information safe, secure and confidential is super important. We provide a full suite of cybersecurity services that protects your organization from outside threats, as well as detect and flag security breaches within your network.
Why Government Organizations Require Cybersecurity
It goes without saying; government organizations are high-value targets for cyber-terrorists. No firm, company or individual is spared from cybercrime, most especially public sector firms. For government organizations, the data they possess is significant to the stability of the economy; therefore, cyberattacks will go the extra mile to acquire their extremely confidential information. As such, it becomes important for your IT team to have a security operations center that flags cyberthreats before they wreak havoc to your entire network.
The loss of highly-sensitive data can cause huge disruption to public services, which can bring about more chaos to the general public. We take on a proactive approach when protecting local and international government organizations from all kinds of cyberattacks. By implementing a 24/7 surveillance protocol, our team keeps a close eye on your public organization’s entire security network with our managed security services.
Security Challenges Facing Government Agencies
The public sector arguably faces the most severe cyberthreats on the planet. Every day, a steady stream of hackers organizes sponsored threats aimed at declassifying confidential information for public release or malicious use. The fact that government agencies must rely on a 24/7 operation of online applications to doesn’t help matters—public sector organizations are always at risk of cyberthreats. Also, the modern-day dependence on online services and web-based content by federal, state and local agencies for protecting sensitive data, leaves these organizations open to attacks from hackers. Here are the top cybersecurity challenges that many government agencies face:
• State-Sponsored Cyberattacks occurs when a nation or state attacks another government agency for access to valuable information.
• Ransomware may occur when a malware takes control or disrupts public files. In such cases, the hacker requests a certain sum of money be paid as ransom.
• Phishing is a type of cyber espionage presented as an email, phone call or text message used to mislead a public organization (the victim) into releasing personal information such as credit card details.
• Hacktivists, who are really just cyber criminals who hack a government organization’s private network for social or political activism.
• Internal attacks from staff or improper use of security systems are also cyberthreats faced by government organizations.
