Cybersecurity in government is no longer an afterthought. Security officers are helping to strategically design their networks and systems to comply with cyber demands from the moment they begin considering acquiring a new solution. The entire government cybersecurity community, including industry, academia, executives, and agencies themselves, have committed to work together to counter threats intelligently.

Effectively protecting data, infrastructure, and information in today’s threat landscape can be tricky – especially as malicious actors, like multi-national crime syndicates and hacktivists, as well as ransomware and other malware tools, become more complex. Today’s cyber-attacks are more sophisticated, take place at a larger scale, and incorporate more techniques than ever before. Because of this, government agencies find themselves more at odds than ever with this new environment.

As we’ve written here previously, the Federal Risk and Authorization Management Program (FedRAMP), is a federal government-wide program that provides a standardized approach to security assessment, authorization, and continuous monitoring for cloud products and services. The process of becoming FedRAMP certified is justifiably rigorous and, as a result, many vendors must wait several months for the seal of approval. The government is taking steps to reduce this wait time with FedRAMP 2.0, which seeks to reduce vendor preapproval time to 3-6 months – a huge reduction in time, especially considering the fastest approval time to date is five and a half months. Still, there will always be some wait time for companies looking to prove their security measures around cloud solutions.

In today’s complex threat landscape resistance as a strategy is indeed futile. Instead of worrying about if hackers will get in, organizations of all sizes have turned their attention to what to do when attackers get in. This change in mindset has led to the need for resilience in IT systems.

What are we to do when the bad guys use our own technology against us? This is what’s happening everyday as bad actors use the data routes we use - email, applications, data traffic, and more - to get into our systems. They then exploit the use of secure socket layers, or SSL, to hide their exit from our systems, with our data! It’s a burdensome challenge in the new normal of “trust no one,” but the cyber security industry is working on a solution.
