Bridging the cybersecurity gap between the public and private sectors

Access Now

Cybercriminals are targeting government assets at a record pace. More than 68% of agencies surveyed said they have been compromised by one or more attacks in the past year. Government entities saw a 1,885% increase in ransomware attacks in 2021.

The private sector is struggling to keep threat actors at bay, too. 2021 saw attack rates jump by more than 30% over previous years. Eight out of 10 companies worldwide have been impacted by cybercrime. In addition, cybersecurity talent shortage isn't going to get resolved anytime soon.

For too long, security has been a solo pursuit. Organizations and government agencies have worked independently to combat growing threats. Yet, security should be a shared responsibility among multiple stakeholders. Connections to third parties, cloud service providers (CSPs), and SaaS providers put organizations in government and the private sector at risk, but cybersecurity collaboration can mitigate these threats.

Cybersecurity is not just about protecting IT infrastructure. It's about national security. This requires a Collective Defense strategy to stop cybercriminals and nation-states in both the public and private sectors. In our eBook, Bridging the gap between the public and private sector, you will learn:

  • How public-private partnerships are working collaboratively on cybersecurity
  • How exchanging threat intelligence, joint operations, and a Collective Defense approach are improving security
  • How cybersecurity collaboration is extending beyond the federal government
  • How the Executive Order on Improving the Nation’s Cybersecurity impacts organizations
