Cyber Security for Federal Government
Taking an integrated cyber defense approach to identify, protect, and respond to advanced threats.
Since the Continuous Diagnostics and Mitigation (CDM) program was launched in 2012, the federal IT enterprise has changed dramatically. We’ve seen the proliferation of cloud, mobility, and other related technologies that have practically erased the network perimeter, and at the same time, the threat landscape has evolved as well with the emergence of more targeted threats that are difficult to detect. Fortunately, CDM provides a solid foundation for adopting to the ever-changing environment. Take a look at our e-book to determine how federal agencies can best leverage CDM to strengthen their overall cyber posture.
When it comes to responding to the current threat landscape, innovation is a must. The problem is not just that threats are growing more numerous and sophisticated, it’s also that agencies have an increasingly complex environment to secure. Each aspect of the enterprise—from the data center and the cloud to the endpoint and the Internet of Things—represents a potential entry point to malicious actors. At Symantec, we understand that to be effective, innovation must be continuous—and it must be deployed as part of a larger Integrated Cyber Defense strategy.
There is a lot more going on in the Cloud than meets the eye. The 2019 CSTR describes how organizations are adapting to the realities of evolving cloud threats.
As cyberattacks become more sophisticated, federal agencies at all levels need to ensure that they comply with administrative mandates in order to keep their systems safe. The NIST-CSF breaks cyber security down into five functions—Identify, Protect, Detect, Respond, and Recover—helping agencies improve their risk management and threat response posture. By providing a structure that agencies can map their cyber security efforts to, the CSF allows agencies to create individualized risk-management plans based on their specific needs and capabilities. Symantec’s scalable solutions adapt to the unique needs of any agency, offering robust, automated security procedures that can save time and resources while addressing the requirements of the CSF.
