More than 70% of government institutions reported a ransomware attack in 2023 with these attacks coming not only from professional ransomware gangs, but also state sponsored bad actors looking to cause wide spread disruption to public services and critical infrastructure. While government agencies understand the issue and are making strides to stop attacks, these are becoming ever more sophisticated with the use of Zero Day exploits and artificial intelligence.

In order to stop these attacks, security personnel face multiple common strategies such as phishing emails, compromised websites, and DDoS attacks as well as bring-your-own-device policies, which gives cybercriminals new entry points onto networks. Traditional solutions no longer offer the level of protection needed to keep critical infrastructure and members of the public safe. Data breaches within government organizations cost billions, cause untold damage and threaten national security.
