Security Operations for the Public Sector

In an ideal world, when citisens give their data to governments, it would stay safe and protected from cyberthreats. Unfortunately, that’s not often the case, as the list of cybersecurity challenges continues to grow at an exponential rate.
It’s clear that governments need to gain greater visibility into what’s happening in their networks—before a breach occurs. However, for most public sector organisations, funding and staffing a 24x7 security operations programme on a tight budget is an uphill battle.

The stakes have never been higher for governments looking to protect invaluable data from cyberattacks.

Stagnant Budgets

Yearly budget increases aren’t keeping up with growing number of sophisticated threats, as well as the new tools and solutions needed to stop them.

Aggressive Threat Landscape

According to InfoSecurity Magazine there was a ransomware victim every 10 seconds in 2020, with remote workers in particular seeing a rise in cyber threats.

Competing Prioritisation of Resources

Compared to highly visible expenditures, adequately funding and resourcing cybersecurity initiatives is often overlooked—until it’s too late.

“Historically, cybersecurity in local governments was usually not a high-priority item, and it might not be something for which staff had training. Even if you wanted to bring in more security, a city might not have had the funds readily available at the time. Having a security operations provider allows us to more easily budget what we do on our end for security.”
