Cybersecurity for the Public Sector and Government

Following the rise of hacktivism, government agencies and public sector organizations are facing increasingly complex challenges to secure their assets from cyber attacks. Modern hackers seek to disrupt critical infrastructure and operations depending heavily on the internet or internal networks to function, as well as compromise confidential information, national secrets or critical intelligence. These attackers will aim for any weak point in your systems to gain access to other critical systems/databases, which is why it’s become such a necessity to regularly audit all of your operations to identify and correct your vulnerabilities before a damaging cyber attack spreads to all your systems.
