Ensuring cyber resilience is a complex task for government organizations. A recent study showed that the biggest barriers to achieving a stronger cybersecurity posture is the lack of skilled employees and limited budgets. At Sage, we work with local, state, and federal government organizations throughout the country who are facing these same challenges.
National government organizations – including the Office of Personnel Management (OPM), the Internal Revenue Service (IRS), the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), and Department of Homeland Security (DHS) – are just a few of the much publicized hacks.
The cybersecurity challenges faced by government agencies are immense, and many organizations are struggling to implement a successful defense strategy. A recent study showed that across 17 industries surveyed, government organizations received the lowest security scores. And the stakes are high – a successful hack could pose a threat to national security and the public trust. According to DHS’s website, “Our daily life, economic vitality, and national security depend on a stable, safe, and resilient cyberspace.” It’s no surprise that cyberspace is now considered a new domain of battle by the US, as important as air, land, and sea.
The escalation of cyber-attacks and the subsequent impacts have heightened our national consciousness over the past few years. The results include new Executive Orders, like Critical Infrastructure (2013) and Information Sharing (2015), and new proposals, initiatives, and policies, as seen in the Cybersecurity National Action Plan (CNAP). All with the goal to increase cybersecurity capabilities within the government and across the country.

To better address cybersecurity risk across all critical infrastructure sectors, Presidential Executive Order 13636, called for the development of a voluntary risk-based Cybersecurity Framework, which was developed by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST).
The NIST cybersecurity assessment is complex and can be a daunting resource-intensive task. Sage’s collaborative approach ensures that the assessment process is effective, educational, and provides actionable outcomes.
Your employees are your first line of defense – and the weakest link – when it comes to cybersecurity. According to a report from PhishMe, 91% of cyberattacks start with a phishing email, where a person is duped into clicking a link to a nefarious site.
Sage’s targeted training sessions can help you start building a culture of cybersecurity and develop a workforce that understands the fundamentals of cybersecurity, so that they can make smart everyday choices to defend against attacks.
