Proactive cyber security for infrastructure with G+D

Defending government infrastructure

Whether a nuclear power plant, energy grid or transport facility, as public infrastructure becomes more connected, it also becomes more vulnerable to potentially disastrous cyberattacks. G+D’s experts know how to keep the hackers out and the workplace safe. Our solutions and services cover absolutely all channels – from equipment and the IoT to mobile apps and physical access to premises.

Any public-sector organization is a target

Cybercriminals are increasingly focusing on the public sector and making sensational headlines, such as with the recent WannaCry, Petya, and NotPetya ransomware attacks. Hospitals in particular have been targeted and vital medical equipment directly hacked. Many hospitals across the UK were so badly affected by WannaCry in May 2017 that thousands of urgent operations had to be suspended. In the USA, health record data for hundreds of thousands of patients has been stolen in various attacks over the last few years.

In fact, any public service is a potential target, from energy, telecoms, transport, and lighting to citizen ID and civil services. With fraudsters becoming ever more professional, the public sector must act proactively to secure public assets and prevent cyber catastrophes. This is where G+D has the arsenal to defeat the hackers and defend public assets. Controlling access and identifying administrators is crucial to keeping fraudsters out. Highly secure chips embedded in smart cards, key fobs, and USB tokens are the perfect solution for logging on to critical systems. G+D has a broad portfolio of certified products used in the public sector, as well as military-grade solutions.

Communication, both internal and external, is another vulnerable area. G+D takes care of key management and end-to-end encryption to prevent strikes such as man-in-the-middle attacks.

To ensure maximum security, a security-by-design approach for application development is absolutely essential, particularly if programs are used on employees’ own mobile devices (bring your own device or BYOD). G+D offers a toolkit for the development of secure applications.
