Recommendations

For companies working with government entities it is imperative to be 100% compliant with national legislature. Among the top concerns for your company are incidents with malware and the inappropriate use of IT resources by staff. While the first concern is effectively addressed by a comprehensive multi-layered security solution, the second requires raising cyber awareness among employees with training from cybersecurity professionals.

European government entities may suffer from disruption to their online services because of DDoS attacks, unless they deploy an integrated DDoS protection solution. There is also a noticeable surge in devices and media being reported lost, which puts an even stronger emphasis on cybersecurity training.
