For Government and local officials working to safeguard the integrity, confidentiality and availability of data, networks and systems, new threats are mounting every day. Those responsible for protecting sensitive data face a constantly changing regulatory landscape, ongoing budget challenges and a shortage of skilled workers.
A big job that gets more complex Digital transformation linking people, places and processes together is happening quickly to help improve the business of government and interactions with citizens. It includes moving services to mobile devices, adopting cloud based services, and connecting objects without human intervention (Internet of Things). Managing and securing vast amounts of data, multiple cloud environments and sprawling Internet-connected devices is very complex. From initial risk assessment to emergency backup and recovery, cybersecurity is a huge job that is only getting bigger. Agencies have a large and constantly expanding set of information assets and operations, each representing different levels of risk and vulnerability. These resources may be susceptible to internal threats, such as disgruntled employees, and external threats, such as malware, identity theft rings, hacktivists and more. Cyber experts need to understand the security posture of all of their IT applications and networks.
