Governments around the world are struggling with a constant state of cyber-warfare and for that reason, are doubling down on internet security like there’s no tomorrow… but it’s not enough. IP (Internet Protocol) traffic will always be at risk, no matter what security provisions are made. However, there is another way. Read on to find out.
The U.S. federal government is proving increasingly vulnerable to cyberattacks, and seemingly every week we learn of more stolen federal employee identities, Russian election digital meddling and pentagon hacks.
These attacks can cripple the U.S. government if systems remain unsecure, according to the “2017 Internet Security Threat Report.” Desperate to secure government systems, the new “Internet of Things (IoT) Cybersecurity Improvement Act” legislation will require connected devices purchased by government agencies to be patchable, and would ban devices that are shipped with hard-coded passwords.
Could there be other solutions to this problem that have been overlooked?
