Effective strategies against cyber threats

Protective measures and best practices in the era of digitalisation

Cyber attacks such as ransomware and phishing are on the rise. To prevent them, it is crucial to have defenses such as firewalls and employee training, as well as security protocols and rapid response plans.

With the relentless advance of digitalization, cyberattacks have proliferated, becoming a constant threat to private and public entities. Among the most frequent are ransomware, which encrypt the victim's data by demanding a ransom for unlocking it, and phishing, which uses deceptive emails to steal credentials. Other common attacks include Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS), aimed at overloading system resources to inhibit services, and Advanced Persistent Threats (APT), prolonged campaigns aimed at stealthily penetrating networks to steal sensitive information.

Computer prevention and education

To prevent cyber attacks, it is essential to adopt a layering of defensive measures. This includes the implementation of robust security policies, the use of advanced firewalls and updated antivirus, as well as the adoption of detection and response (EDR) systems. Staff training is also essential, as increased awareness can dramatically reduce the risk of falling victim to phishing and other social engineering techniques. Training sessions should include attack simulations, thus accustoming users to correctly identify and respond to threats.

IT security protocols and best practices

The adoption of multi-factor authentication protocols represents another powerful barrier against illicit access to systems and data. Regular software patching eliminates vulnerabilities that could be exploited by attackers. It is also recommended to conduct frequent security audits and penetration tests to verify the effectiveness of protection measures. Encrypting data both at rest and in transit provides an additional level of security, which is particularly crucial for sensitive information.

Intervention and response to security incidents

If you are faced with a security incident, you need to act quickly and efficiently. Implementing an incident response plan, already defined and formalised, will facilitate emergency management. Reporting the crime immediately to the relevant authorities allows you to take advantage of specialized support, while collaboration with cyber security companies can help mitigate the damage. After an attack, it is essential to perform post-incident analysis to understand what happened and strengthen defensive measures to prevent future attacks.
