At CURELL SUÑOL we have completed a series of courses on cybersecurity to make members of our organization aware of the risks associated with the use of computer and telematic tools, as well as web browsing and cell phone use. The aim was also to make them understand the prevention and protection measures adopted by our IT managers.
Cybersecurity is the practice of defending computers, servers, mobile devices, electronic systems, networks, and data from malicious attacks, which we might call cyberthreats. It also protects people as end users.
As you know, phishing, malware, ransomware, etc. are proliferating and we must all be informed and act responsibly and prudently. We must protect the integrity and privacy of data, both stored and in transit, and also keep devices, software, and mobile applications free from threats. Operational security includes the processes and decisions that protect data resources with permissions for users to access a network, as well as the procedures that determine how and where data can be stored and/or shared. Instilling good practices at the user level is vital. Likewise, implementing cyberthreat prevention and barrier systems is fundamental to prevent the accidental introduction of a virus into a system.
Some of the conclusions of the course were:
On the side of IT managers
1. Update software and operating systems to take advantage of the latest security revisions.
2. Use powerful and up-to-date antivirus software to obtain the best level of protection.
On the side of end users
3. Use strong passwords that are not predictable or easy to guess.
4. Do not open e-mail attachments from unknown senders.
5. Do not click on links in e-mails from unknown senders or web sites.
6. Avoid using unsecured Wi-Fi networks in public places.
