Limited awareness related to cybersecurity

The government workforce is the first line of defense against intrusion by criminals, offenders, or antagonistic nations. The internet has made it simpler for antagonists worldwide to attack even the municipality, department, or agency. Countries with archaic IT technology are easy targets for ransomware attacks or malware infections. Thus, hackers hit under-prepared government bureaucrats with malware, email phishing scams, or stolen passwords to break in and steal confidential and vital government data or lock up critical systems required for operations and services. For example, phishing scams are the act of using fake text messages or emails to trick people into clicking on sketchy website links to steal personal information.

Government officials must be conscious of the precise ways to avoid cyber attacks and are constantly kept aware of and involved in the topic. Without suitable training, any government official can make the silly but possibly disturbing error of clicking on a deceitful email or website link. Hence, owing to the limited awareness related to cyber security is expected to hamper the defense cyber security market.
