Secure Local Government Employees with Protective DNS

The NSA and CISA recommend that companies should implement protective DNS. It’s only fitting that local government agencies take their own advice and put PDNS in action by applying DNS security across all of their devices. As an entity susceptible to attacks, government organizations need to proactively defend themselves against would-be attackers.

State & local government bodies are vulnerable to ransomware attacks

It’s no secret that government agencies are vulnerable to cyber attacks. They house valuable information that outside attackers would love to get their hands on. But it’s not just data winding up in the wrong hands that’s the problem when it comes to attacks on government organizations. An attack could render an agency without their usual computer systems for days or weeks, resulting in major downtime.

Of the malware attacks that government agencies were the victim of in 2020, 61% were ransomware attacks per Verizon’s 2020 Data Breach Investigations Report. 33% of the data compromised were credentials and 14% was internal data. The top recommendation for governments based on the types of attacks they’re vulnerable for is “Boundary Defense.”

Like Verizon says, that’s “not just firewalls, this Control includes things like network monitoring.” That’s where DNSFilter fits in. Put protection in place for every click to give your government organization visibility into DNS traffic and a PDNS solution that any network should have.
