Cybersecurity Training for Government Agencies
The kind of data that government agencies are responsible for is among the highest order of sensitivity information. As such, they’re a valuable target for hackers looking to take advantage of security weaknesses, hoping to cause a data breach across any portion of a government network’s attack surface or edge. In the wake of increasing cyberattacks across multiple industries, restoring the public’s face in the validity and sanctity of their governing bodies starts by transforming their online experience. To live up to those expectations, and to improve the quality of interaction with their constituents, investing in cybersecurity training for government agencies is a crucial step to take.
There are many measures a government agency can take to safeguard their network – DDoS reinforcement and application attack mitigation, real-time SIEM reporting and analytics, alerting algorithms, cloud-based attack protection, and more. These ensure that your agency can withstand attacks from every angle, minimizing service downtime and providing comprehensive data protection. However, there’s another factor that you also have to be aware of: the human element. Around 90% of all cyber threat inclusions are due to human error, making your own personnel one of your most significant security risks without proper training. Omega Systems is here to fix that, providing an expansive cybersecurity curriculum that ensures all employees are equipped to identify and prevent cyberattacks.
How Do Hackers Perceive Your Network?
Your IT infrastructure is a complicated latticework of numerous resources and applications working together to promote a safe atmosphere and ensure maximum uptime for your organization. The question is: how knowledgeable are your employees about your infrastructure? Are you effectively managing your internet-accessible devices? Which assets are most vulnerable to attack? Without understanding your security posture, your entire infrastructure is at risk of exposure to unwanted elements.
Many of these problems will never be the responsibility of your workforce at large. The IT department will be able to handle and resolve your cybersecurity transformation initiatives. However, just because the rest of your workforce isn’t directly responsible for the inner machinations of IT cybersecurity, that doesn’t mean that they can’t contribute to a safer infrastructure.
Our CAT+ service helps train your employees to respond to any situation. The only reason the human element is a vulnerability within your infrastructure is due to a lack of comprehensive training. Employees need to understand how to protect your interests, and we provide that by enabling them to identify risks, detect threats, and create greater visibility across your attack surface for faster response, remediation, and containment.
The kinds of cyber attacks that regularly occur across worldwide government networks and infrastructure are varied and evolving. If you’re going to protect your network, every employee needs to have access to the latest information on the state of the cyber threat landscape. By constructing a robust, extensive cybersecurity awareness program, your entire infrastructure can benefit from a proactive, mature security model. Some of our features to help promote this state include:
- Targeted training
- Smart groups
- Automated awareness
- Advanced reporting
- Active directory integration
