Innovations with public cloud services, mobile apps and social media platforms make life easier for government agencies, but they all bring more cybersecurity issues.
Governments and educational institutions house vast and diverse amounts of information on their networks, servers, and websites. Every day these agencies and institutions face persistent and advanced cyber threats that steal money and disrupt services, putting the public at risk.
Protecting your data, managing risk, and meeting the mandates of compliance regulations are critical challenges for the public sector. Government agencies need to consider the ways their network vulnerabilities propose cybersecurity risks to them and their employees, the public and other organisations. Educational institutions need to consider how their cyber risks could affect their employees, students and the organisation itself.
