La importancia de una buena implementación de estrategia de Identity and Access management (IAM) para mantener a salvo los datos de la empresa.

El identity and access management (IAM) es un conjunto de procesos y tecnologías que se utilizan para administrar y proteger los datos y recursos de una organización. Se trata de un componente fundamental de la seguridad de la información y es esencial para proteger los datos de clientes, empleados y socios comerciales.

Hablamos de un enfoque sistemático para la gestión de las identidades y los accesos de los usuarios a los recursos de la organización. Esto incluye la identificación y autenticación de los usuarios, la autorización de los usuarios para acceder a los recursos, la gestión de las cuentas de usuario y la supervisión del acceso de los usuarios.

¿Por qué es tan importante una buena gestión y estrategia? 

La gestión de identidad y acceso es particularmente importante en un entorno en el que las organizaciones tienen que hacer frente a amenazas cada vez más sofisticadas. Los ciberdelincuentes pueden utilizar una variedad de técnicas para obtener acceso no autorizado a los sistemas de información.

Por tanto, una buena estrategia de IAM incluye la gestión de contraseñas, la autenticación de múltiples factores y la gestión de privilegios. La gestión de contraseñas es especialmente importante, ya que si son débiles o comprometidas, son una de las principales vías por las que los ciberdelincuentes pueden obtener acceso no autorizado.

Además, también ayuda a cumplir con los requisitos legales y normativos. Las leyes y regulaciones relacionadas con la privacidad de datos y la protección de información personal exigen que las organizaciones tomen medidas para garantizar que sólo las personas autorizadas tengan acceso a la información confidencial. La implementación de una estrategia de IAM puede ayudar a cumplir con estos requisitos, lo que puede evitar sanciones y multas.

La gestión de identidad y acceso es esencial para proteger los datos y los recursos de una organización. Con una estrategia de IAM bien diseñada y ejecutada, una organización puede asegurarse de que sólo las personas autorizadas tengan acceso a los recursos y datos necesarios para realizar sus funciones y responsabilidades y así, protegerse contra los ataques no deseados. 

Además,  se consigue mejorar la eficiencia y productividad de los empleados, mejorar la confianza y la reputación de la empresa frente a sus clientes. 

En Soffid proporcionamos todos los servicios necesarios para poner en práctica una correcta implementación de IAM con una garantizando que el sistema cumpla con todos los requisitos  de estabilidad, escabilidad y rendimiento.



Consejos de ciberseguridad para viajeros

Consejos de ciberseguridad para viajeros

How to protect yourself from cybercrime? The cybercriminals have been targeting airports, and the travel industry in general. Because people tend to let their guard down when they travel. This posture is doubly compromised when you are the on-point admin for so much of your network.

Protect yourself from cybercrime while you travel

No matter where your wanderlust takes you, you can protect yourself from cyber risks. So before you go on vacation or business, take these steps to protect yourself from the dangers of cybercrime.

    1. Verify each Wi-Fi network before connecting. Look for official notifications regarding the network connection and make sure the name is accurate. Additionally, be aware of any notifications related to the computer being used on a shared network. If you are a system administrator, hopefully you either have a VPN in place, a jump box, or another form of technical security in place.
    2. Always keep your devices with you and avoid leaving them unattended in public places. Don’t forget to add password protection and encryption to sensitive files as well; this will ensure that any data stored on your device remains secure even if it falls into the wrong hands.
    3. Arm yourself with dual factor authentication, so if you are an executive or entrepreneur, and your account is somehow exempted in any way from MFA policies, change that immediately.
    4. Leave Blueprints so you will always have coverage. Even if you don’t have someone on staff, bring in a partner, a trusted advisor, or even someone with a related but indirect role.

These are just the basics of protection. But they become much more important once you access things as an IT professional or a system administrator.
You are a target and to malicious outsiders, between travel and your role, you are a weak point to target.

Nuevos enfoques y retos en ciberseguridad

Nuevos enfoques y retos en ciberseguridad

Every company must face the new cybersecurity challenges and for this there is a new approach. «Developing a fully integrated strategic approach to cyber risk is fundamental to manufacturing value chains as they align with the operational technology (OT) and IT environments—the driving force behind Industry 4.0«, Deloitte said recently.

With the advent of Industry 4.0, threat vectors are expanding. That is why new risks must be considered and addressed. The main objective will be to implement a safe, vigilant and resilient cyber risk strategy. When supply chains, factories, customers, and operations are connected, the risks of cyber threats increase. The risks are enhanced and have a greater scope, he added.

Adopting new approaches and challenging conventional thinking is essential in an increasingly digitized world. “In terms of security, if we’re not moving forwards and developing, then we are effectively going backwards because our adversaries will definitely be moving forward,” commented Johnson (partnerships and outreach manager (digital and STEM), founder and director of Women in Cyber Wales)

Technology change has been beneficial to both organizations and its employees. The adoption of technological innovations by organizations has skyrocketed in recent decades. increase global spending on technology across all industries. 

The adoption of new technologies brings many benefits to the company. At the same time it comes with risks and free threats. The new technology must fit perfectly into the business. If the right fit is not ensured the sustenance will be at large risk.

The adoption of new technologies to overcome cybersecurity challenges

New technology while adopting create internal conflict in an organization. They are such as managerial, Technological, sociological and economic related. There are several attributes of conflicts and they are usability, interoperability, common business views, agility, scalability, reliability, openness, manageability, infrastructure and security. Here Security assumes major role.

With data breaches continuing to pose a threat to any emerging technology, it’s critical to think about a good investment in cybersecurity. The increase in technology exists in any type of business, from health care, finance, manufacturing, services or any other. In order for these companies to be able to exploit them efficiently and prosper, they must put into practice cybersecurity policies and practices.

It is necessary to adequately analyze the security risks of the technology that will be implemented. In addition, before institutionalizing technologies, effective strategies must be implemented.

Why Security Standards Are Important

Conformance with established standards and best practices is essential for increasing the protection baseline in cybersecurity. Many organisations lack personnel experienced in the domain and, therefore, have a hard time adopting new approaches and techniques. Education is an important component, but in-depth knowledge is hard to transfer.

Thus, certification methodologies that distil certain best practices into structured, easy-to-apply guidelines have an important role in the proliferation of cybersecurity innovation.

The Evolution of Threat Hunting

Threat hunting continues to evolve for organizations that focus on proactively detecting and isolating Advanced Persistent Threats (APTs) that might otherwise go undetected by traditional, reactive security technologies.

While many SOCs are struggling to cope with the current security threat workload, more organizations are adopting threat hunting as part of their security operations. They are discovering that proactive threat hunting can reduce the risk and impact of threats while improving defenses against new attacks.
