The critical nature of law enforcement agencies and sensitive information on their networks underscore their need for cyber solutions including cybersecurity awareness training. Phishing is one of the most prevalent ways that cyber criminals launch attacks and with all levels of law enforcement members being targeted, all members of law enforcement agencies need to be equipped with cyber awareness training as a preventative way to protect your network.
Law enforcement organizations are not only targeted with phishing scams and emails, but other attacks as well that could take down and compromise entire systems, including TDoS and DDoS attacks, as agencies rely on network communication and can’t afford systems to be down.
Most municipalities and state governments have laws banning the payment of any ransom in a cyber attack, but any network downtime and access to that sensitive data can have far-reaching complications beyond any financial demand for law enforcement agencies. The current cyber threat landscape underscores the need for cybersecurity awareness training for law enforcement
A proactive approach to cybersecurity is necessary for law enforcement to have a trusted partner to identify potential malicious traffic and attacks before they happen, provide cyber awareness training to prevent attacks, and help building an incident response plan when an attack takes networks offline and compromises sensitive data.
