Currently, most companies have computer infrastructures to manage different data flows, and many of them contain sensitive information for their activity.
That is why the confidentiality and integrity of systems acquire a fundamental value in many sectors. In others, what counts is availability, because a possible stoppage in the service can generate millions in losses..
To guarantee these three fundamental pillars of information security, it is necessary to implement mechanisms that offer us tools that help us achieve our objectives. Among these mechanisms we can highlight data encryption, backup or access control systems.
However, there are other threats such as viruses, ramsomware, scams or Trojans whose objectives, although they may affect the security of information, are usually the degradation of the corporate image, espionage or obtaining some kind of profit.
Therefore, in addition to guaranteeing the security of an organization’s information, it is necessary to guarantee the security of its own IT and telecommunications infrastructure.
For this, it is necessary to implement advanced cybersecurity mechanisms that are audited both internally and externally, and an exhaustive work of raising awareness of the employees that are part of the organization.
The mechanisms can be based on hardware elements such as firewalls or antispam systems, on software elements such as antivirus or proxies, or implement advanced for Intrusion Detection Systems (IDS), Mobile Device Management (MDM) or Security Information and Event Management (SIEM).
In addition to the implementation of these mechanisms, in order to guarantee the security of an IT infrastructure, it is necessary to apply certain recommendations related to its design and to have contingency plans for possible attacks. To cover these needs, audits and security consultancies are required.
Cybersecurity must become a priority in companies and be part of their continuous improvement processes, since investing in the security of our systems is to ensure the continuity of our business.
