Ways to Reduce Data Breach Risk

Although government agencies can’t totally eliminate their cybersecurity risk, there are practical steps government employees can take to reduce it.

It’s essential for agencies to have a solid inventory of their assets, including: 

• Data 
• Cloud providers  
• The companies cloud providers depend on  

Having a complete view of your assets ensures your agency is accounting for everything that could be a target, giving you a solid foundation to protect anything that’s considered attractive to bad actors.
