So, what is cybersecurity and how do we apply it to protect our information?
Cybersecurity refers to the security protocols, methods or tools for the information contained in computers, servers, mobile devices, electronic systems or networks to prevent malicious attacks.
The sectors with the greatest demand for cybersecurity protocols at the national level are the financial sector, the health sector, government platforms, payment gateways (fintech) and electronic commerce companies, mainly interested in the protection of personal data or sensitive information, such as email passwords, bank details or personal identity data (date of birth, official identification, among others).
Today, the challenges that arise around cybersecurity in Mexico are mainly focused on raising awareness about the importance of data protection for individuals and organizations.
For companies and organizations, the challenges are the absence of intentional budgets to implement cybersecurity strategies in their digital assets and the belief that the data they possess is unimportant and unlikely to fall victim to malicious attacks.
