Government and public sector organisations are under constant threat from a broad range of adversaries seeking to disrupt critical state infrastructure and operations as well as compromise confidential information, intelligence and national secrets.
In the search for high value targets, cybercriminals will seek out organisations whose poor security controls make them a weak link in the chain. To defend themselves against growing range threats, governmental organisations, including state departments, agencies and councils, face a range of cyber security challenges including:
• Stemming attacks seeking to disrupt public infrastructure and services
• Protecting mission-critical intelligence from malicious actors
• Defending against targeted attacks funded by nation states
• Managing continuous and widespread workplace digitisation
• Balancing limited funding and competing national and regional priorities
Key security questions government organisations should be asking:
Under the PSN Code of Connection (CoCo), UK public sector organisations are required to perform annual IT Health Checks to routinely identify and address vulnerabilities within infrastructure and applications.
The NIS Regulations are designed to raise the security and resilience of network and information systems across the EU. Operators of Essential Services (OESs) and Digital Service Providers (DSPs) are required to have appropriate security measures in place to manage cyber risk, protect critical systems, detect cyber events, minimise risk and maintain continuity. OESs will be regularly audited to ensure their compliance, with fines as high as £17 million for incidents resulting in significant economic disruption or threat to life.
Public sector organisations that processes personal data are also subject to the requirements of both the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and Data Protection Act 2018 (DPA). To achieve compliance, organisations must continually assess data security risk and ensure that any personal data processed is protected against unauthorised processing, accidental loss or destruction. Non-compliance and failure to report breaches within the mandated 72 hours could lead to a large fine.
