Pamela Warren, Director of Government and Industry Initiatives at Palo Alto Networks, shares her thoughts on why a platform approach is critical to effective cybersecurity within the government space. Warren explains that government organizations make four common mistakes when trying to secure their information systems. The most basic error, she said, is failing to have visibility to what is happening on your network: "What we're seeing is that many organizations are unaware of what applications they are even running on their network." This ends up being a major barrier to effective cybersecurity because it leaves unseen gaps in security for attackers to target.
