White paper: The cyber landscape of the Public Sector
As National Cybersecurity Awareness Month draws to a close, we are delighted to launch this white paper which delves into the increased threat of cybersecurity attacks and the nature of cybercrimes that public sector organisations and local government face.
The digitisation of public services over recent decades has moved at such a pace that cybersecurity has often failed to maintain the same momentum. Such juxtaposition has resulted in ill-prepared and misinformed organisations being unable to, or mistakenly deciding not to, maintain the necessary protections to operate cyber-secure operations.
In this white paper, we take a look at some of these issues and set out our proposals whilst considering the difficulties faced by different sized public bodies, their procurement activities, and acknowledge the quantity of education which is required to reduce cybercrime.
