Responding to Real-Time Cyberattacks in Government

Today more than ever, agencies must be prepared and know how to respond to breaches. But in today’s environment, are agencies prepared to respond effectively to all types of cyberattacks, or do they face obstacles that make adequate response difficult, if not impossible?

The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) Cybersecurity Framework (CSF) can help agencies improve response preparedness. To learn how agencies are using the CSF to respond in real time to attacks, GovLoop partnered with DLT and Symantec for this report that analyzes survey responses of 150 federal employees working on cybersecurity challenges.

In this report, we look at how agencies deal with critical cyberattacks, where they succeed and the challenges they face. We’ll also gain insight from Ken Durbin, CISSP Senior Strategist of Global Government Affairs and Cybersecurity at Symantec, and Don Maclean, Chief Cybersecurity Technologist at DLT Solutions.
