Government entities are engaged in a new cyber security arms race. With the ever-changing risk landscape and the amount of personal and mission-sensitive data collected, government entities are scrambling to recruit enough cyber security professionals. Increasingly sophisticated adversaries are using machine learning, automated intelligence, and other tools to exploit information. So how can government entities gain the upper hand? They must be innovative in protecting key assets and maintain a more sophisticated risk management strategy. And they must mature and expand their technology capabilities — including the latest in automation and analytics.
