Financial and tax services, energy and transportation services account for half of the cybersecurity incidents of very high or critical danger, according to data from the National Cryptologic Center (Spain).
Although cyber-attacks on essential infrastructures are not the most numerous, they have the greatest impact, as they can jeopardize the continuity of an essential service such as a hospital, an airport or a water treatment plant, affecting the safety, health or welfare of citizens.
All these solutions, moreover, come with advanced Microsoft 365 support that, by applying optimal cybersecurity configurations, enables system monitoring, identifying personal data security breaches, disaster recovery and notifying those breaches to the data protection authority and customers.
With the pandemic, cybercriminals seek to maximize damage and make financial gains by attacking critical infrastructures such as hospitals.
Main risks of critical infrastructures:
How to secure a critical infrastructure?
This way the most critical environments are less exposed to the outside world.
Contacting the manufacturer to see if there are patches or software updates.
Adopt new protection systems
Equipped with artificial intelligence and machine learning to gain detection and reaction capacity.
Update and establish more restrictive security policies.
Adapt them to changes in your architecture.
Contemplate the risk of third parties
Implement technical and contractual controls with the companies that provide you with services, suppliers and even the workers themselves.
“Cybersecurity should not be seen as an expense, but as an investment”
Cyber-attacks have become more sophisticated and increasingly targeted. All this, added to the fact that exposure to risk has increased due to the expansion of teleworking and the Internet of Things, makes it essential to have a cybersecurity monitoring, auditing and prevention service.
