IT complexity is the most significant obstacle to strengthening the security postures of government agencies — pushing budget constraints to second place for the first time ever.
Government needs agile technology to provide timely, effective services to the public and keep pace with changing needs.
Today, the Office of the CIO (OCIO) is more important than ever, and crafting a strong OCIO strategy is essential for effective governance, team alignment, streamlined operations and enhanced citizen services.
While initial defense strengthening involves cybersecurity awareness, MFA, and device patching, the future lies in embracing zero trust principles. As technology evolves, our defenses must evolve too. By challenging traditional notions of trust and overhauling our cybersecurity approach, we can effectively mitigate the ever-growing risks of cyber threats.
The Defense Department’s Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC) is designed to protect sensitive information from cyberthreats. The CMMC’s implementation, though, has been a long time coming.
The problem is not just the number and frequency of potential cyberthreats, but the complexity and diversity of the threat vectors used to compromise agency systems, networks, and data. An integrated cybersecurity mesh platform can help.
When developing cyber metrics, it’s important to ensure that your underlying process for gathering and analyzing the data can handle the task.
Government needs to do more than simply collect raw measurements if it wants to really understand the impact of any initiative, including in the realm of cybersecurity.
The increasing frequency of cyber threats and attacks requires strong cyber defenses. There are multiple paths to becoming a cyber professional.
