US Federal Government Cyber Security and Data Protection

Vormetric Data Encryption Solutions help Federal Government Agencies and the firms who work with them protect sensitive information and prevent data security breaches

Federal Government

During Fiscal Year 2015, US-CERT processed more than 75,000 cybersecurity incidents reported by CFO Act government agencies, up from the more than 67,000 incidents reported in FY 2014, and the White House has made cybersecurity a top government-wide priority.

Insider Threats

Insider-implemented breaches, such as those by Edward Snowden and Bradley Manning can not only severely cripple the ability of Federal agencies to achieve their objectives, but can also have a chilling effect on Federal professional and administrative careers.

Stolen Credentials

While insider threats persist, external threats are becoming more menacing and sophisticated. Advanced persistent threats, or APTs, blur the line between insider and external threats by allowing external adversaries to steal the user credentials required to bypass perimeter defenses and act as insiders. Due to their sophistication and required resources, APTs are often attributed to nation-states and other highly organized entities.

The Need for Compliance

As cybersecurity threats have proliferated and computer technology has advanced, government data security compliance has become increasingly complex.

The government mandates encryption, and major government security compliance regulations such as FISMA, NIST 800-53, FIPS (up to level 3), and Common Criteria need to be part of the any government data-security solution. And, as data moves to the cloud, government agencies need to comply with FedRAMP. Finally, depending on the government agency, HIPAA-HITECH and PCI DSS may also be important.
