The health situation caused by Covid-19 has meant big changes in companies, many of them have had to adapt on the fly and implement strategies such as teleworking. However, this means greater exposure and less protection if appropriate measures are not taken. José Manuel Roviralta, Cybersecurity technician for Companies at INCIBE participates in C1b3rWall Academy with a lecture on ” Cybersecurity for companies”.
The aim of his lecture is to discuss the key steps to maintaining adequate cybersecurity in companies.
José Manuel commented on the importance of keeping the workspace organized and under control, especially on the devices that contain documents and confidential information. Passwords and the use of external media must also be secured. Caution should be taken with documents moved to the bin; the best solution is to eliminate the document.
It is convenient for a company to determine a password policy (expiration date, strength, double authentication factor, no reuse, four types of characters…).
Telework has become widespread, and many companies are already using it, either in a mixed modality or fully online.
A fundamental issue that companies need to address is securing the data they manage. The key to preserving information against external incidents, such as floods or targeted attacks, is the proper management of backups. Just as not all companies are the same, there are different backup management methods.
