CYBERSECURITY IN THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT
Federal agencies face many of the same cybersecurity challenges as private-sector organizations. These include a barrage of attacks such as malware, phishing emails used to spread malware or steal credentials, and distributed denial of service attacks that can be generated by malware-infected systems elsewhere. Agencies also must deal with issues that businesses typically do not encounter, however, and that requires a new approach to protecting data assets.

Nation states continue to recruit highly skilled people whose main focus is to carry out these attacks. DOWNLOAD
