Top 5 security improvements to protect against public sector cybercrime
The solution to reducing public sector cybercrime lies in finding trusted experts, like Firstserv, to provide managed solutions and secure cloud hosting including disaster recovery, managed backups, and server monitoring.
Public sector cybercrime has been particularly dramatic over the last year. The digital skills gap, home working, multiple device access and a lack of cyber awareness in employees have all contributed to increased cyber risk. Due to its size, the number of systems utilised, numerous locations and the number of employees, the NHS is particularly vulnerable. In January this year, Firstserv rescued an NHS Foundation Trust after their skills gap left them defenceless.
Sharing the experience of working with an NHS Foundation Trust, Firstserv’s Sebastian Tyc emphasises how managed services and cloud hosting are critical in the fight against public sector cybercrime.
