10 lessons from the last year to help you increase your security level today.

The threat of cyberattacks looms large over governments. To create a robust cybersecurity strategy for your agency, it helps to first gain a better understanding of the security landscape worldwide.

  • Enterprise computers encountering malware at a lower rate than consumer computers thanks to stronger protection
  • Adobe Flash Player objects were the most commonly detected on malicious webpages
