Cyber Security in Government

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

GDPR compliance in Government

Under the PSN Code of Connection, UK pblic sector organisations are required to perform annual IT Health Checks to provide assurance that organisations are protected from compromise and that vulnerabilities across internal infrastructure and applications are identified and addressed.

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 huge GDPR fine.

The maximum GDPR penalty for a cyber security breach.
