CYBERSECURITY FOR STATE AND LOCAL GOVERNMENT iS CHALLENGING

Governments at the local and state level currently face a major cybersecurity skills gap. These institutions have limited budgets and as a result, a difficult time hiring a security team. With cybercrime on the rise, it is important that every organization consider their options for improving their cybersecurity posture. While building your own SOC can be difficult and costly, outsourcing cybersecurity to an MSSP can quickly improve your cyber security posture for a relatively low cost. With the technology and services that are now available, it is possible for public organizations to significantly reduce risks from both external threats and internal data loss. 

Key challenges for organisations in government include:

  • Protect the personal data of employees and private citizens
  • Maintain continuity and safety of essential services
  • Upgrade fragmented and outdated network infrastructure
  • Enhance security capabilities with limited budget and personnel
  • Reduce risk of modern cyberthreats such as ransomware

Key security questions For State/Local Government

 

Security questions state and local governments should be asking:

  • Are security controls prepared to defend against targeted attacks?
  • What systems/controls are set up to mitigate insider threats?
  • How regularly are digital infrastructure tested for vulnerabilities?
  • Are systems able to identify threats that make it past the perimeter?
  • How often are backups created to reduce impact of ransomware?
  • Is a plan in place to detect, respond to, and report breaches
