30 million – that’s the number of malicious cybersecurity intrusions the Department of Defense thwarted in 2015. That translates to 3 million attacks per month or 100,000 attacks per day. Part of the reason for all of these intrusions is that there are more than one billion connected devices on the Internet today. That means there are more entry points that can be hacked than ever before.

What’s more, according to DoD: “roughly 80 percent of incidents in the cyber domain could be traced to three factors: poor user practices, poor network and data management practices, and poor implementation of network architecture.”

In order to prevent these intrusions from fully breaking down the security of any government agency, security must be baked into the DNA of every technology, process and system. As government services continue to evolve in the digital world, security best practices and procedures need to as well.
