Available Now: Relieving the Pain Points of Federal IT Modernization
As cloud and mobile technologies fuel IT modernization efforts in federal agencies, IT and security pros face a dilemma: they need to update and secure aging systems, but must do so with tight budgets, arduous buying cycles and massive existing investments in legacy gear.
IT modernization can’t happen at the flip of a switch. Yet the need to secure government systems continues to grow. According to The Washington Business Journal, federal agencies reported 35,277 information security incidents to the Department of Homeland Security’s U.S. Computer Emergency Readiness Team in fiscal 2017, which is is up 14 percent from 30,899 reported the prior fiscal year. That breaks down to about 96.6 attacks per day.
The DHS sums it up this way:
“Cyberspace and its underlying infrastructure are vulnerable to a wide range of risk stemming from both physical and cyber threats and hazards. Sophisticated cyber actors and nation-states exploit vulnerabilities to steal information and money and are developing capabilities to disrupt, destroy, or threaten the delivery of essential services. A range of traditional crimes are now being perpetrated through cyberspace.”
Agencies must overcome a host of new pain points IT modernization initiatives introduce to ensure smooth and secure operation.
