The Government sector is no longer alien to cyberattacks. From the U.S. presidential election being interfered to government IT assets and public utilities being breached, the intrusions not only disrupt the everyday processes but also pose a great risk to citizen data. It is key for government organizations to be more vigilant in securing their infrastructure, firewalling internal data and networks, and zeroing in on cybercriminals. Many CIO’s and C-level executives are incorporating new age technologies like AI and machine learning to predict potential attacks.
Furthermore, numerous security consulting companies are starting to collaborate with government organizations to assist the leaders in integrating the latest and most innovative technologies in the right way to build an effective security strategy. Cybersecurity measures such as implementation and maintenance of control access, and using intrusion detectors to monitor system and network activity are some of the major steps these agencies are taking to strengthen their real-time defenses.
Today, there are myriad of security consulting and services companies out there delivering superior encryption, access control, and other novel security mechanisms that can be embedded in digital as well as hardware assets to protect government networks.
