Key cybersecurity services for your company

The companies of this millennium, regardless of their size, age or sector, must manage their business by dealing with risks of all types. In particular, they have to control the technological risks much more, since as the company grows, these risks could have a very large impact that in turn can generate associated costs.

How cybersecurity affects companies

Uncertainties caused by the technological risks associated with business can be minimized, and even avoided, with a properly integrated cybersecurity system.

In a company, cybersecurity offers the best guarantee of business continuity in the event of a cyberattack.

Its main goal is to focus on protecting the critical assets of the company's business areas by providing confidence and stability against the risks involved in using technology. An appropriate cybersecurity strategy allows attacks to be handled normally, limiting their impacts and allowing companies to deal with any external liabilities.

Why is it critical to have a cybersecurity service?

It is critical if you are preparing to offer services or products where technology is part of the process, since a fault, caused by the impact of a security incident, would harm the service or product offered. Harm that, if critical enough, could seriously jeopardize the company's continuity.

Cybersecurity is also an absolute must in every company, and this is reflected in European regulations, which have been transposed into our Spanish legal system. This obligation means that we must not only guarantee the security and continuity of the business, but also define the company's liability to third parties stemming from government and/or civil claims.

As a result, having a cybersecurity service allows you to:

  • Protect your customers' intellectual property and/or information from third parties.
  • Ensure the availability of services, minimizing interruptions over the course of the activity.
  • Be more competitive in the market in response to the challenges of the digital transformation.
  • Digitize without fear of the technological risks posed by these attacks.

The five key services to ensure the safety of a company

As I touched on above, cybersecurity is a key part of the operation of any type of company, but what steps have to be taken to guarantee a company's security?

  • Audits of security systems and applications to ensure their robustness.
  • Regulatory compliance audits as per national and international standards
  • CISO as a service to guarantee optimum support in the development of the master security plan.
  • SOC: Monitoring the activity of security systems to deal with incidents that could compromise the protective measures put in place to mitigate risks.
  • DFIR: Active response to critical security incidents that pose a risk to business continuity.
