Conquering the top 20 critical security controls: A blueprint for quick wins

Incident response starts with planning. How does your organization stack up?

Government IT security strategy is transforming. It must, in order to keep up with increasingly sophisticated and persistent threats, increasingly connected and mobile users, and a maturing understanding of effective risk management approaches.

  • Today’s well-funded and organized criminals bombard an attack surface that now includes interconnected tactical networks, global operational systems, and a cloud-based supply chain
  • More users — employees, joint information environment partners, citizens, and vendors — need more rapid yet reliable and secure access to more sensitive information
  • Whether the mission is defense, civilian, energy, state and local government, or healthcare, mandates and regulations like FISMA/CAESARS, FDCC/USGCB, HIPAA, and GPG 13 are encouraging an emphasis on mission assurance
  • Continuing economic pressures require investments that augment security without adding cost and complexity


To meet these demands, McAfee Public Sector solutions help government agencies balance resources and security goals. McAfee solutions integrate, consolidate, and automate IT security operations to reduce cost while providing the visibility and intelligence necessary for better situational awareness. With these core requirements under control, organizations can optimize, evolving from reactive firefighting to information superiority based on continuous and intelligent risk-based management and compliance processes. As needs change, the same secure but extensible framework enables expanded services, including transparent, confidential communication with citizens and joint information environment partners.
