RedSense Public Sector Safety Shield

Protecting Public Entities Via State and Regional Cyber Command Centers

Securing Our Community Institutions: A Cybersecurity Dilemma

Our community institutions, the backbone of daily life—like municipal offices, neighborhood schools, and local healthcare centers—are up against significant cybersecurity threats. These smaller public sector organizations dedicate themselves to providing indispensable services to our communities, a noble and vital mission. Yet, their unwavering commitment to public service may also mean they aren’t focused on cybersecurity.

The unfortunate reality is that cybercriminals are targeting these very institutions, exploiting their digital vulnerabilities. These attackers recognize that while the services provided by these organizations are essential, their digital defenses are often less fortified, making them attractive initial targets. Once they gain access to a smaller organization, these cyber perpetrators can potentially escalate their attacks to larger, interconnected agencies, thereby threatening the integrity of even the most well-protected public institutions.

Building Public Cybersecurity Safety with RedSense

Redefining cybersecurity for small public organizations doesn’t have to require complex technical systems for each. Instead, imagine a collective safeguard, much like an expandable umbrella, stretching over a multitude of organizations. This is the idea behind RedSense Public Sector Safety Shield. Robust cyber threat intelligence, combined with internet telemetry analytics, delivering highly qualified alerts to a state or regional cyber command organization. No hardware or software necessary because it is all delivered as an outsourced service.

This strategic approach ensures swift and effective detection of actual, relevant threats that allow larger state and regional security organizations protect ensuring the safety and integrity of the essential institutions and the data under their watch.

Avoiding the Pitfalls of Cumbersome Infrastructure

Kevin Stear, RedSense Chief Technology Officer, emphasized the solution’s design, “We created a system that integrates advanced threat intelligence and network visibility without the need for additional infrastructure, allowing a state’s cyber defense resources to focus on directly addressing threats with smaller institutions.”

The solution operates without any need for on-site hardware or software, instead using a systematic approach to collect and evaluate an organization’s publicly available information. RedSense closely collaborates with state resources to adjust the frequency and type of alerts and reports, fostering a continuous, dynamic interaction between RedSense threat analysts and the cyber command team—a cornerstone of the RedSense strategy.
