Rapidly Evolving Threats
New sophisticated threats are creating new risks for federal cybersecurity. These threats are complex, varied and getting more sophisticated every day. Attacks continue to increase in volume and sophistication, meaning that agency defenses also have to evolve. The challenge is especially difficult for government agencies because they manage sensitive data that requires special handling, classification and heightened access monitoring for insider threats.
need for resilience
Government agencies need more resilience, with fewer siloes and the ability to detect, investigate and respond to issues in real-time – even as they occur. Implementing a risk-based approach and adhering to the mandates from the NIST are critical steps toward developing this resilience.
