Welcome to the official blog of ThinkCloud For Government!
The Government needs to pay a lot of attention to their sites because their sites are always at a risk. Different countries take help from the hackers to steal the confidential information of other countries. Some of the Government websites contain complete information about every resident living in their country. So, if this information gets leaked, it would create a very dangerous situation.
Usually, hackers do not make any attempts to hack the websites of Government but the government should still be very careful about the information that they have on their websites. Today, we are going to talk about the tips that Government officials can follow in order to protect their sites from cyber attacks. Last year, many American websites got hacked during the elections and it was reported that some Russian hackers made those attempts.
The issue is now completely resolved but this reported created a huge chaos in the whole country. So, the Government should now think wisely and prepare a proper security plan for their websites so that nobody can make any attacks on their websites. Here are the tips that Government can follow in order to improve tech security on their sites.
Hire cyber security experts
The cybersecurity experts can stop cyber attacks better than others. So, the government should hire the cybersecurity experts for this job. There are some countries where cybersecurity experts are hired from other countries. These foreigners can also be a threat to your confidential information. Therefore, the Government should prepare some scholarship plans for the residents of their own country so that they can participate in securing their sites.
Keep an eye on latest security trends
The security trends are continuously changing in the tech industry. The hackers are introducing some new techniques to hack different websites. Therefore, the Government officials should keep an eye on these new changes. They can hire some employees for this purpose so that they can regularly read the information about the latest trends in the tech industry.
The government should hire an employee for every top tech tip site so that they can stay updated with the information that is being shared on these websites.
Create own firewall system
There are many companies that are offering firewall system to secure the websites but the Government should not rely on these systems. The Government should hire the experts to create a separate firewall for their websites so that nobody can think of breaking that system. The firewall should be designed by the experts that are completely aware of the techniques that are being used to hack different websites. Here are some other ways how government can improve tech security on their sites.
The government of a country doesn’t usually have any objection against any kind of game because games are a source of entertainment and most of the countries appreciate the efforts of several companies that are developing excellent quality games regularly. There are many game development companies that are running international games successfully for many years and they have never faced any problem with any country throughout their journey.
However, there are some game developers that sometimes develop some games that are designed for a particular group of people or the games that have some explicit content in them. In this situation, the government of a country doesn’t have any option instead of banning that game because such kind of games can create a chaos in the country.
And sometimes, this may lead to some dangerous results. Therefore, the best way to stay away from chaos is to ban a game that is against a particular group of people. The government of each country has developed some rules and regulations with for the online computer games with the help of their IT experts. These rules and regulations may appear a little bit offensive to some game developers but they are bound to develop the game according to the rules and regulations of a country otherwise, their game won’t be launched in that country.
Banning the IP
Banning the IP is the easiest way of implementing the restrictions against a particular game. There are some limited internet service providers in every country. The government of every country has the right to pass the order to these service providers to stop or start the transmission of a website or channel etc. For example, if the government of a country realizes that Barbie Juego en Juegos Friv is breaking their rules, they would simply send an email to the internet service providers to stop the transmission of this game immediately.
The internet service providers will detect the IP of that game and then they will submit a command in their main server. After this, the game will be completely blocked in that country and no one will be able to play that game unless the ban is released.
Taking the case to the court
If a game is developed to ruin the traditions of a particular country, the government of that country has all the rights to take the developer of that game to the court. The court will listen to the opinion of both the parties and after that if the court found that the developer has done something willingly, the court will issue an order to ban his game permanently and then he’d be charged a heavy amount as a fine.
