Security Operations for State and Local Government
In an ideal world, when citizens give their data to state and local 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 organizations, funding and staffing a 24x7 security operations program on a tight budget is an uphill battle.
The stakes have never been higher for state and local governments looking to protect invaluable data from cyberattacks.
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 Recorded Future, in 2019 alone, there were more than 140 ransomware attacks targeting state and local government and public healthcare providers, a staggering 65% increase from 2018.
Competing Prioritization of Resources
Compared to highly visible expenditures, adequately funding and resourcing cybersecurity initiatives is often overlooked—until it’s too late.
