In the era of Digitalization, government organizations face persistent cyber-threats. Spying on sensitive information, theft of government data, and cyber-attacks on critical infrastructure are on the rise as governments are expanding information networks and the digital ecosystem.
Digitalization has enabled government organizations to adopt a data-centric approach and accomplish projects of national interests more effectively. Nevertheless, a weak IT security posture can lure state actors, insiders and hackers to target systems and critical infrastructure. This, in turn, can compromise national security and badly impact the pace of Digitlisation.
Broadly, there are four components in the digital ecosystem that can be compromised.
- Digital Identities and passwords
Ensuring robust security for these components will enable government organizations to implement national cyber defence strategies.
In this whitepaper, ARCON discusses how it helps government organizations to build a resilient IT security posture.
