Federal IT professionals say their agencies are cyber-resilient, but in reality many grapple with threats and internal ignorance, according to a new study.
In the survey released today by Market Connection and SolarWinds, findings show that while the majority of respondents describe their agencies as cybersecurity-ready, many still face threats by both insiders and external attackers.
Market Connections and SolarWinds earlier this year polled online 200 IT and IT security professional decision makers in the federal government and military. Close to 95 percent of all respondents rated their agencies’ cybersecurity readiness as good or excellent, saying the appropriate tools, processes and policies have been implemented.
