Top threats and attacks

Cybercriminals increasingly target government databases, as they are rich sources of information from citizens and various organizations, all linked through a network of diverse digital platforms. With governments relying more on technology and moving more services online, there's a heightened urgency to develop innovative security measures. 

Among the most pressing threats faced by the government sector are:

  • State-Sponsored Cyberattacks
  • Ransomware
  • Hacktivists
  • Improper Usage & Internal Attacks
