Deriving Insight From Chaos

Government chief information security officers (CISOs) are faced with a seemingly infinite supply of challenges when it comes to cybersecurity: tight budgets, limited resources, hackers, data leaks, compliance and regulatory issues. A recent Center for Digital Government survey of 100 state and local security officials found that only 12 percent of respondents feel that they have sufficient resources to protect their agency against cyber threats, 60 percent say they experienced some form of intrusion/cyber attack in the last year and more than 80 percent expect to face more cybersecurity threats in the next year. Defensive security strategies focus on network traffic, but leave enterprise endpoints – laptops, desktops and servers – vulnerable. This Center for Digital Government issue brief discusses how endpoint security analytics provides intelligence and insight that allows government CISOs to actually predict and prevent undetected and unknown cybersecurity threats.
