Cybersecurity is a very important feature of any company. The companies that are aware of its value are continuously striving to strengthen their security. Many of them have realized how crucial cybersecurity is during the COVID-19 situation. According to IDG Research, 25% of companies have fallen victim to cyberattacks during the pandemic.

COVID-19 was an a sudden and unexpected crisis, companies were forced to reduce or modify their activities at short notice, so there was no opportunity to take precautions and evaluate the most appropriate security measures. However, it has raised awareness about the importance of a good cybersecurity structure and the best strategies for preventing attacks. Artificial Intelligence can certainly be of great help in foreseeing future threats, intervening more quickly than any human being and thus outstripping cyber-criminals.

These solutions require further investment and specialists capable of implementing them. Although AI is in itself very effective, if combined with human expertise and action, it can offer even better results. To achieve good cybersecurity, we must work together.

Helping companies improve their Internet security tools is a primary objective, in fact the Digital Plan 2025 promoted by the State, seeks to gather around 20,000 specialists in cyber security, artificial intelligence and data to meet this objective.

At BISITE our objective is to help companies and to train specialists, that’s why we have designed the Master’s Degree in Internet Security, which will teach you about cyber-intelligence, forensic analysis, blockchain or SIEM.
