Are companies prepared against cybercrime?

Every day more than 100,000 teams suffer a cyber attack in our country, according to figures from the National Cybersecurity Institute (Incibe). But that's not all, and the Gartner consultancy estimates that cybercrime is a business that will generate more than 79,000 million euros this year alone. Also, there are already studies that define it as the most significant criminal activity in history, even surpassing drug trafficking, corruption, or terrorism, by the number of victims affected.

The figures show that the magnitude of the problem does not stop growing. Although many think that only large companies can be affected, some reports by Kaspersky Lab and Avast, companies that create the most used antivirus in the world, claim that 7 out of 10 cyberattacks target small businesses, of which 60 % disappears six months later. There is no doubt, and no company is free to suffer a cyber attack. However, many companies still could not manage them successfully. Only 38% of global organizations say they are prepared to face a sophisticated attack, according to an ISACA International report.

These cyber-attacks affect not only the economy of the company but also the prestige of the companies. There are cases of firms that have not reported it for fear of losing the trust of their customers if they discover that their data has been exposed. Against this background, from IMF Business School, they affirm that a good strategy to fight against cybercrime goes from protection and early detection to immediate action by the company.

Some of the most common tricks to protect our equipment are the constant update to avoid system vulnerabilities, the use of passwords with lowercase letters, capital letters, numbers and symbols, the realization of regular backups that allow us to restore lost data quickly or to hire 'ethical hackers' specialized professionals who identify vulnerabilities, verify security procedures and resist third party attacks. Therefore, the school ensures that the best prevention lies in training.

Trained employees

Most of the time, the attacks are not only aimed at companies but also at employees through infected 'emails' to get their access codes, steal data, and request a ransom. Therefore, employee training is the key to reducing the number of recorded attacks. From IMF Business School, they are aware of this. They have designed a new Master's Degree in Cybersecurity with online and face-to-face modality by companies such as Deloitte that are emerging on cybersecurity issues today.

For Carlos Martinez, president of IMF Business School, "the business world is beginning to be aware of the magnitude of the consequences of suffering a cyber attack. For this reason, they perceive cybersecurity training as an investment and not as an expense. We don't know when it can happen to us, that's why we must be trained and prepared because that is our only defense. "
