TYSONS CORNER, VA, March 2, 2018 — Thales has found that 57 percent of U.S. federal government respondents say their agencies experienced a data breach over the past year, with vulnerabilities from shared infrastructures topping the list of cybersecurity concerns, ExecutiveBiz reported.
The “2018 Thales Data Threat Report, Federal Edition” ranked shared infrastructure vulnerabilities as the top concern with 72 percent of respondents, followed by cloud security breaches at 68 percent and encryption key custodianship at 62 percent, the company said.
“Encryption can be viewed as complex, and the management of encryption keys challenging for organizations dealing with budget and staffing limitations,” said Nick Jovanovic, vice president of Thales eSecurity Federal.
“[F]ederal government agencies can start by selecting encryption and key management technologies that offer a smart, centralized approach and work across clouds, on-premises and in data centers,” he added.
