Cybersecurity Recommendations For Government Organisations
The scale and importance of data, both government and defence organisations possess and distribute make them an attractive target for cyber attackers. Here are our recommendations on how to make your organisation cyber aware.
Acknowledge The Threat – The chance of experiencing a data breach is high, but if you are prepared, you can mitigate the impact this will have on your organisation. The security mantra for any organisation should be ‘when’ and not ‘if’ we will be breached.
Address The Entire Organisation’s Security – Do not limit security to just the IT department. Instead, share it across your people, processes, and technologies as these are all targets for hackers. We also advise involving senior executives in your security process.
Create A Cybersecurity Strategy & Plan – Create and distribute an incident response plan to your team. Ensure they understand the steps so that when your organisation’s cybersecurity governance network is threatened, there is a procedure that can immediately be deployed. Don’t forget to create a disaster recovery plan; this will help you recover from an attack and help operations recommence as soon as possible.
Penetration Test Your Environment – Penetration testing helps you evaluate your organisation’s security by testing it using ethical hackers like Nettitude.
Remediate Findings – After a test, act quickly to remediate any findings that highlight threats or weaknesses to your organisation.
Stay Vigilant – Securing and protecting an organisation is a continual process. Arrange regular security reviews and never be complacent. As the threats continue to develop, you must develop a defensive cybersecurity governance framework that accounts for these.

Frequently Asked Questions About Cybersecurity For Governments
What is penetration testing?
Penetration testing is an authorised attack against a system. Ethical hackers will exploit cybersecurity vulnerabilities to demonstrate the impact of any weaknesses in your government networks. Penetration testing takes the perspective of a hacker, which means the tester may discover features about the system which a threat actor would exploit. The tester shares this information with the government agency and advises them on how to eliminate these vulnerabilities.
Why is government cybersecurity important?
When government infrastructures are compromised, it directly undermines national security. More detrimentally, it affects the trust your nation has in its governance. A robust cybersecurity system is thus necessary to protect networks against malicious advancements. It is thus vital to make effective cyber risk assessments to ensure no loopholes are left to be exploited.
What is the first step to strengthen government cybersecurity?
The first step to establishing a strong security system in your government networks is to first understand what your aims are. Following that, you must ascertain where the threats are, information a risk assessment provides. Following that, you can implement a cybersecurity strategy. Speaking to experts like Nettitude will help you understand the requirements better, and set in place effective safeguards for your infrastructure.
