Plan and protect

July 20, 2017

What are the main cyber threats to central government?

UK central government is already one of the most digitally advanced in the world, and as its digital transformation progresses through 2020 and beyond, systems are becoming more interoperable, while information and workspaces are shared more readily across organisations, departments and agencies.

As the Government Transformation Strategy points out, no other company – not even the largest global organisation – manages the volume of services, functions and activities that the government delivers on a daily basis to millions of people.

Yet as the government’s digital transformation continues to evolve, the risk of cyber-attack inevitably grows, with the type of potential threats becoming more diverse and sophisticated.

So how can you plan and protect against increasingly complex security breaches?

Cisco’s comprehensive threat-focused security portfolio protects government organisations and public services, helping them stop threats before, during, and after an attack.
