Threats are evolving at an accelerated pace, including ransomware, supply chain attacks and newly announced software vulnerabilities. This places a huge burden on federal government SOCs to secure, operate and defend their infrastructures.
These challenges come as many agencies also embark on an ambitious digital transformation journey. They’re migrating to the cloud, expanding remote work and automating routine security operations tasks.
In addition, the White House has released an ambitious executive order on improving the nation’s cybersecurity. Likewise, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) and the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) have released a binding operational directive. Their mission is to identify and remediate known exploited vulnerabilities on federal networks.
To make these challenges even more difficult, federal government agencies are tasked with doing more with less. Government SOCs need a plan. This playbook outlines the steps and keys to transforming cybersecurity operations within the federal government.
When SOCs evolve for the future, they’re capable of combating advanced attacks while improving efficiencies. Efficiency and efficacy are both possible. Download this playbook to learn how.
