Technology has provided new ways for government agencies to work and interact with its clienteles and improve overall operations. As an increasingly large portion of our lives and activities occur online, cybersecurity is an ever-growing concern. Cyber threats become more and more of a concern since Cyber criminals are constantly developing new ways to attack systems, agencies and individuals. In this era, Cybersecurity has proven to be a necessary investment for government agencies. The lack of access control regarding personal information can put individuals at risk for fraud and identity theft. Additionally, a data breach at the government level may risk the security of the entire country.
