Tamim Ahmed, risk analyst at Bangladesh Government's Computer Incident Response Team or BGD e-Gov CIRT, explains the steps the organization is taking to help secure the nation's critical infrastructure.
"Every year, we prepare a Bangladesh threat landscape report to identify the critical threats for our country," Ahmed says in an interview with Information Security Media group. "We also identify the global trends of cyber threats, and then we conduct workshops with officials from critical information infrastructures. Together, we identify which threat will have more impact on the organizations."
Information gathered is used to prepare a risk assessment report, which is shared with leaders of organizations that provide components of the critical infrastructure.
