Breaking the Cyber Attack Chain in the Public Sector
Recorded live on June 26, 2023
If we look at cyber attacks like chess games, email infiltration is the most common opening move for threat actors. Your publicly accessible email address reveals a lot of information – such as your name and potential login credentials – making it easy for cyber criminals to plan attacks. They use this information to strike, compromising accounts and moving laterally from one identity to another, elevating their privileges to access the most valuable data.
Due to a lack of resources and skilled staff, many government CIOs and IT leaders are turning to managed services to combat these challenges. But what is the most effective way to use managed services? And how can governments plan for the long term to get the in-house tools and talent they need to effectively break the cyber attack chain?
Industry experts from Government Technology and Proofpoint will explore these questions during this recorded webinar. This interactive session will cover:
- Enhancing cybersecurity to stay ahead of cyber criminals and prevent common attacks such as phishing, ransomware and BEC
- How to turn your users into a strong line of defense through security awareness training
- Workforce strategies to get your agency the talent it needs and build in-house capabilities
