Published by: Research Desk Released: May 20, 2020

State and local governments, municipalities, city councils, local law enforcement agencies, federal government agencies, and other government entities – collectively the government sector – are under attack from cyber criminals and nation-states. Threats from ransomware, business email compromise, phishing and other security threats are relentless, and 2019 was a banner year for various types of attacks against government.

A few examples for various types of Cyber-attacks:

  • Ransomware
  • Phishing
  • Business Email Compromise
  • Data Breaches

Osterman Research have recently published a white paper focused on cyber security in government that discusses the problems in depth. It discusses a number of important best practices that government decision makers should seriously consider.
