Cybersecurity for public administration

For public organizations operating at large scales, increasing efficiency is a constant requirement driven by political demand.

Public institutions are facing a number of challenges, including:

  • Compliance requirements are increasingly difficult to meet (GDPR, ISO, NIS etc.)
  • Increased complexity in the infrastructure makes it challenging to obtain centralized analysis across the organization
  • Difficult to detect advanced persistent threats, data loss and insider threats
  • Increased privacy requirements have to be met while maintaining smooth IT operations and
    secure data of citizens
  • Rising data amounts means more expensive analysis- and cybersecurity operations

Many public organizations tasked with securing data may not have the right solution to do so. It’s a problem – but one with a solution. That solution? SIEM. LogPoint’s seamless, quick reporting on unusual behavior in the network easily adapts to compliance requirements specific to your agency or institution.

Threats

Public IT infrastructure are facing an unprecedented threat level, stemming from actors as diverse as nation-states, cybercriminals, hacktivists, trill-seekers and insiders.
