away from the negative connotation that accompanies the pandemic for the cyber securityThis has become a new trigger for any defense project to update and modernize security resources, largely due to the prevalence of remote work.
According to the latest analysis by IDC Research, Cybersecurity expected to return 7.7% growth this yearbecause the increase in cyber attacks does not stop and it is predicted that Affected 90% of companies in 2021, somehow. Such attacks continue to increase and are becoming more and more dangerous due to their lethality and impact.
Something that will continue over the next year, according to Innovery, a multinational consulting service specializing in ICT solutions that outlines the key challenges organizations face in terms of cybersecurity:
- human-centered. The human factor is the weakest link in cyber security. ANDl 85% of current attacks on digital assets are the result of human error. Therefore, it is important to raise awareness and provide education on security issues, especially in social networks where some of the latest social engineering attacks are concentrated. The big question is how to avoid them, and experts say corporate security policy It includes all organizational members, both inside and outside the facilities. This is the biggest challenge of cybersecurity; make every user aware of the importance of maintaining a set of basic protection measures; train employees with a regularly updated good practice guide; and stress the importance of not following suspicious links, visiting unsafe websites, or being scammed by email. If it’s too good to be true, it won’t be true.
- Cyber security management. The next year will be filled with economic uncertainty and digital transformation will be the best way to combat a possible recession. Investment in technology will play a relevant role in keeping companies agile and competitive. In addition, the increase in cyber attacks in the media has caused companies to become aware and increase the budget allocated to cyber security. But, The big problem is not in the investment, but in knowing how to manage these resources, how to handle cyber security. Because, as Pirelli said:uncontrolled force is useless”.
- Size doesn’t matter. Cybersecurity management is not just a task for large corporations, as no company, no matter how small, is immune from being hacked. SMEs are unforgiving and must rely on subject matter experts to protect their data and not be vulnerable. Such companies form the Spanish business structure and should invest in cybersecurity, that is, they should have specialized companies that not only update the antivirus, but also carry out constant monitoring and prevent their activities from being affected by any type of attack.
- importance of backup. Backup solutions have always been considered obsolete or outdated because they are not widely used or demanded. In general, these environments were not fully preserved or fully recovered, only partially. Since most of the work is in the cloud, updating these resources has become essential. Business continuity means greater recovery capacity as well as increased system restore speed
- Improve the position of the CISO (Chief Information Security Officer). The CISO’s role reflects an organization’s degree of maturity. Modern companies and organizations see cybersecurity as another element of their resilience, so decisions about it should not be made solely by the IT department. A much stronger presence of the IT Area chief across the board, corporate governance and future strategies is needed to be aware of the risks and take key measures to ensure security.
- Lack of custom profiles. After the outbreak of the epidemic, the demand for cybersecurity specialists has increased significantly and the supply is not enough to meet it. There is a lack of trained professionals around the world to support companies and institutions, especially in countries like Spain. As Incibe and the National Observatory for Technology and Security (ONTSI) noted, this year Spain needs more than 80,000 cybersecurity professionals to meet current demand.
Juan Manuel Pascual, CEO of Innovery Spain and LATAM, said:Cybersecurity plays a fundamental role in the age of digitization, where companies need to be resilient.This will be one of the key technological challenges of the coming years, and to face it, companies and organizations must understand that cybersecurity is the layer that provides quality to their systems and practices, that it is no longer a simple option but a necessity. something critical to their success and survival. The cornerstone of your current and future resilience. For this reason, I think it is highly recommended not to interrupt the work or activity, to listen to those who know, to seek advice and to trust their experience.”
