Cybersecurity is a condition of non-vulnerability in which users can share and store private information without fear of falling victim to a cyber attack.
Advances afforded by the Internet Of Things (IoT) now permit communication between data-generating tools such as sensors and storage clusters which then relay said data on to processing.
This information is not always for public use, and it is important to consider that using the cloud to save this data implies that you can access access it from anywhere that has internet, which is why it is necessary to have a trustworthy authentication system so that only authorized users may have access to it.
The security risks that have arrived with the digital transformation include:
- Threats to earnings and reputation due to leaked data.
- System risks on account of undue access and controls.
- System vulnerabilities inherent to programming and storage of data on the cloud.
- Physical harm to infrastructure and machinery due to malicious attacks
Safeguarding activities, protecting systems and the strategic assets, within the framework of cyber security with protected solutions from end to end are some of the aspects that effective cyber security should focus on.
The vision of the National Cybersecurity Strategy states that, by 2030, Mexico will be a resilient nation in the face of risks and threats in cyberspace and responsibly leverages the potential of Information and Communication Technologies for sustainable development in an environment trusted for all.
