CyberSecurity Solutions For Government and Public Service

In recent years, many state and local governmental organizations have gone through extensive processes of digital transformation, enabling them to provide a wide range of public services online.

A new generation of DDoS attacks, however, threatens the availability of such services, which can disrupt critical systems, impede emergency response and erode public trust.

Secunets offers a comprehensive DDoS protection solution to secure the availability of government services and systems against modern DDoS threats.

How DDoS Attacks Harm Government Organizations

Disrupting of Critical Services

Government websites and communication channels are taken offline by DDoS attacks, resulting in significant disruptions for mission-critical national and state online services

Impeding Emergency Response

DDoS attacks can impede government agencies' emergency response systems, hampering their ability to assist in crises, natural disasters or security incidents

Undermining Public Trust

Disruptions to government websites or online services can undermine public trust in reliability and service delivery, causing citizen frustration and undermining public trust

Threatening Data Security

DDoS attacks can act as smoke screens for other forms of cyberattacks, keeping security teams busy while attackers exploit vulnerabilities elsewhere

Causing Legal and Regulatory Consequences

Government organizations are subject to strict data protection and security regulations and may face legal and regulatory consequences in the event of successful DDoS attacks that disrupt the availability of critical systems

Putting National Security at Risk

DDoS attacks on government organizations pose consequences for national security, threatening the availability of key military, national and local systems critical to national and public safety

Governments should deploy advanced monitoring solutions to detect and respond to cyber threats in real-time. This requires implementing an effective incident response plan that includes predefined procedures and designated incident response teams.

Regular review exercises should test the plan’s effectiveness.

More widely, governments should consider programmes to promote cybersecurity awareness and education initiatives at all levels, including training for employees, stakeholders, and the general public. Encouraging a culture of cybersecurity awareness and proactive risk mitigation is a key aspect of maintaining strong cyber defense.
A comprehensive approach to a critical task

Governments and public sector bodies face the task of safeguarding critical information and infrastructure from emerging cybersecurity threats. By focusing on robust risk management, comprehensive security policies, collaboration, and information sharing, organizations can enhance their cybersecurity defenses.

Creating visibility at national and sector levels and establishing mechanisms for sharing threat intelligence are essential components of a proactive cybersecurity programme.
