The U.S. Department of Defense has recently announced that it is working to deploy security standards across all defences to better protect the country from cyberattacks and other attacks on our information systems. With this announcement, we can see a concrete example of how government agencies are taking steps towards securing America’s networks, data, and infrastructure against foreign and domestic threats.
This blog post will provide an overview of these efforts and their potential impact for public-sector organizations seeking to strengthen their cybersecurity posture through strategic investments in technology and talent acquisition – while also increasing trust with citizens by protecting their privacy rights.”
How Can Better Cyber Security Benefit Society?
As we’ve seen in the media over the last year, cyber security is something that affects all of us. While there are many benefits to our modern digital world – from increased connectivity between people and devices to advances in healthcare, research and industry performance metrics – this also means more risk for attack.
This risk can be mitigated by taking appropriate steps towards securing your data assets through both technological investments and bolstering your human capital resources with dedicated professionals who have specific qualifications or training in information security management systems (ISMS). There are several different roles within an organization’s cybersecurity team, including:
- Security Analyst/Engineer
- Architect/Senior Engineer/Manager
- Information Risk Manager
By ensuring better preparedness across all of your defences, you can help to make the country safer – whether it’s through a proactive approach to protecting data in the cloud or investing in an intrusion detection system for hackers and malware.
