Cybersecurity in Government
In an ideal world, when citizens give their data to local governments, it would stay safe and protected from cyberthreats. Unfortunately, that’s not often the case, as the list of cybersecurity challenges continues to grow at an exponential rate.
It’s clear that governments need to gain greater visibility into what’s happening in their networks before a breach occurs. However, for most public sector organizations, funding, and staffing a 24/7 security operations program on a tight budget is an uphill battle.
Yearly budget increases aren’t keeping up with growing number of sophisticated threats, as well as the new tools and solutions needed to stop them.
Integration of Security Architecture
As the attack surface expands for a local government, cybersecurity teams scramble to fill coverage gaps with point products. Over time, this results in a highly siloed security architecture filled with solutions that do not integrate or communicate with each other. This architectural fragmentation results in decreased visibility, delayed threat response, and operational inefficiencies. It also creates cost inefficiencies due to siloed, overlapping software and hardware license costs.
Governments are accountable to the public, and compliance information is often a matter of public record. They must achieve and report compliance with regulations about the handling of personal information, protection of critical infrastructure, and environmental standards.
