The Canadian Public Sector is constantly exposed to cybersecurity challenges. Our Public Sector organizations need to stay vigilant in protecting their organization and data against cyber espionage by understanding their environment and protection strategies. Achieving a balance between centralizing and decentralizing regulations, governance, and policies regarding cybersecurity across the public sector can strengthen organization’s cybersecurity. Constantly monitoring and
revising cybersecurity controls will ensure your organization is aware of any breaches, identify failed attacks, and detect the areas of improvement for higher level of protection.
