Cybersecurity will become a more prominent topic in company discussions


Although the subject of cybersecurity has already taken on much greater proportions than just the IT sector, this is where prevention actions must begin. More specifically, it is the IT manager's most important role in this regard.

First, it is necessary to guarantee a solid digital security structure, as well as actions aimed at improving this system: antivirus, VPN, firewall, Active Directory, backups, replication, penetration tests, systems programming, etc. In parallel, it is essential to invest in raising awareness at all levels of the company.

On the part of the company's managers, the risks must be clear. There is no security system that guarantees zero risk. Therefore, a contingency plan should be developed with a view to corrective actions in the event of an incident. This includes backups that are allocated outside the company environment on an external server (a cloud backup, for example), to enable restoration in the event of an attack.

In relation to employees in all areas, it is necessary to invest in training that involves not only awareness, but the implementation of internal safety standards. One of the main vulnerability factors of companies is human action - hackers work with social engineering to use people's behavior in favor of planned attacks.

Investing in technical and human issues at the same time is the key to a minimally reliable structure. However, it is crucial to maintain a culture of risk assessment and strengthening security systems - whether virtual or behavioral.

With this in mind, cybersecurity will become a more prominent topic in company discussions and the engagement of everyone will enable a more protected digital environment!
