Federal CISOs face a unique cyber security challenge - copious amounts of regulatory compliance paperwork. At the same time, the Federal government responded to more than 106,000 cyber attacks in 2011 - including cyber exploits that injected viruses, stole information, and disrupted Federal network operations.
While agencies must comply with FISMA, the regulations focus on complying with a narrow set of security and privacy controls. What these regulations don't do is actually protect government networks from Advanced Persistent Threats (APTs) or other nefarious activity. Fortunately, there is a solution to this dilemma. Many Federal CISOs are deploying game-changing technologies that offer robust protection - without breaking their limited budgets.
