Federal government cyber security

Federal agencies and the nation’s critical infrastructure—such as energy, transportation systems, communications, and financial services—depend on IT systems to carry out operations and process essential data. But the risks to these IT systems are increasing—including insider threats from witting or unwitting employees, escalating and emerging threats from around the globe, and the emergence of new and more destructive attacks. Therefore a proper cyber security plan for the federal government is crucial.
As per GAO’s recommendation – Establishing a comprehensive cybersecurity strategy and performing effective oversight with regards to mitigation of global supply chain risks and possible malicious hardware is of the utmost importance.
Tackling this challenge requires complete visibility to your hardware assets, regardless of their characteristics and the interface used for connection, as attackers take advantage of the “blind” spots – mainly through USB Human Interface Device (HID) emulating devices or physical layer network implants.
