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
To achieve compliance with the incoming General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) it is essential that all public sector organisations have suitable technical and organisational measures in place to ensure that personal data is protected against unauthorised processing, accidental loss and destruction. Another important GDPR requirement is the need to have robust procedures in place to detect and investigate personal data breaches as well as report them within 72 hours to a relevant authority and, in high-risk cases, to affected individuals.
By helping government departments, councils and other public sector organisations to understand and address gaps in their cyber security as well as proactively detect and remediate threats when they arise, Redscan’s affordable managed cyber security services support swift, hassle-free GDPR compliance.
