Public sector organizations face unique challenges when it comes to building and advancing their cyber security.
The path to a better government security posture is to build or advance cyber security capacity, fortify their cyber mission and operations and fully understand and measure their security.
Build Cyber Capacity
To elevate security operations, governments must develop their security controls and validate security programs. They can succeed through hands on support, ongoing training and an intelligence-based government cyber security program.
Fortify Cyber Missions and Operations
Skills shortages continue to challenge governments. Threat intelligence that offers an early knowledge advantage, along with outside experts can help close gaps.
Know the Measure of your Security
To protect high-value assets, governments must strengthen their environments by understanding their attack surface, and continuously monitor and validate their controls against real attacks.

Moving Toward Improved Government Cyber Security
Zero trust is a least privilege concept built on the principle of “never trust, always verify.” It is critical to supporting widely distributed and remotely connected workforces.
Zero trust provides the underlying fabric for a strategy to develop a stronger security posture. By adding layers of continuous security validation, detection and response and automation, comprehensive visibility of the extended organization and threat intelligence, public sector organizations can ensure a modern approach that efficiently and effectively addresses the cyber attack landscape.
