Prevention. Detection. Response.

Adversaries are taking malware to unprecedented levels of sophistication and impact. The growing number and variety of malware types and families perpetuates chaos in the attack landscape by undermining government efforts to gain and hold ground on threats. As adversaries increasingly target the public sector, their goals become more varied. While financial rewards continue to be a top priority, more emphasis is being placed on the destruction of data and damaging key infrastructure. And there appears to be a clear attempt to disrupt governance and sow seeds of distrust and fear.

To keep public sector networks secure, government must continually adapt and respond to current and emerging threats by adopting innovative technologies and processes. Government must increase resilience from attacks by adopting an end-to-end, threatcentric cybersecurity approach that provides deeper visibility into networks. Learn more.
