You don’t have to be an IT professional to know that cyberattacks are on the rise. Increasingly sophisticated and well-coordinated cybersecurity attacks on large-scale industrial operations have grabbed the headlines. But, as a recent assessment completed by Granicus and Booz Allen Hamilton showed, governments remain a prime cybersecurity target. From large government agencies to local county networks, attacks—most often in the form of ransomware attacks—have surged in 2021.
For governments looking to defend themselves, cybersecurity must be at the base of all online interactions, networks, and, most importantly, software. Particularly when working with third-party software providers or vendors, it’s important to build the groundwork for safe government transactions. At Granicus, we base our approach to cybersecurity on four pillars of operational, cultural and product-based security that enable digital government to thrive by building trust with residents.
