Securing Government and Public Sector Organizations

Government agencies and public sector organizations store and manage vast amounts of sensitive data, including personal information of citizens, classified information, and critical infrastructure details. These entities are often targeted by nation-state actors and cybercriminals aiming to disrupt services or steal data. Penetration testing is vital for these organizations to identify and address security weaknesses in their IT infrastructures.

By performing penetration tests, government and public sector organizations can protect their networks and systems against sophisticated cyber threats. This helps ensure the continuity of essential services, safeguard sensitive data, and maintain public trust. Additionally, penetration testing supports compliance with various cybersecurity standards and regulations specific to the public sector.

Rarefied has worked with several federal, state, and local governments to help identify vulnerabilities in their systems.


Government and Public Sector organizations are often concerned with the following compliance Standards:

Federal Information Security Management Act (FISMA)
International Organization for Standardization 27001 (ISO)
National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST)

All of these standards mandate or recommend penetration testing to help ensure security best practices are being followed, and this is where Rarefied can assist your organization.
