Moving forward, should all software for govermnent use be first auditioned and tested by independent cybersecurity organization?

With the rise of cyber-crime and lot of software that is used at governement level having lot of security holes due to poor testing / standards / cutting corners to make the development cheaper, should there be new standards in software certification for government / public sector use?

I feel it is no longer acceptable and safe to trust the suppliers their software is secure and let them deliver black-box software to end user.

I’d imagine/ hope to a degree it is tested. However no amount of cyber security testing is going to stop a savvy and determined hacker group. Not to mention patches that might cause security issues, OS and hardware differences that might cause a vulnerability bug to appear. Then you have the general state of government estates in general, networks running on unpatched equipment with crap network security, unhardened, outdated Hosts. It’s a total mine field

%110 yes there are people who do this for a living for smaller companies and often report it and it’s ignored until a major breach is caused. Wouldn’t be surprised at all if the same thing happens to gov sites
