NEW OPPORTUNITIES, NEW THREATS. Digital technologies are taking place more and more in our lives. Over the last 24 years, we have witnessed their evolution, an accelerated evolution that has changed the way we work, the way we relate to each other, communicate and interact with the world. They changed our way of life. And meanwhile we saw how the PC had fallen into the background and how the mobile phone had become an inseparable companion; how devices of all kinds are getting smarter and ‘intelligent’ in our homes and cars; helped the birth and growth of online businesses and social networks; We have witnessed the emergence and democratization of technologies long ago unimaginable.
Today, we can say that everything is more convenient, fast and simple. Maybe too much… and also more dangerous. And it is how we automatically perform endless tasks without thinking that the display of these opportunities leaves the door open to new risks and threats. But either out of ignorance or a perception that it is not necessary, we often give up on security measures in the face of a real risk: According to a report by ObservaCIBER, 41.1% of the population declare risky behavior as not keeping updates up to date. to date, clicking on questionable links or downloading files from untrusted networks.
And at a time when most people are increasingly storing data on their smartphones and taking a walk, both physically and virtually, we often rely on the default security of devices. Contacts, appointments, emails, private photos, bank details and all kinds of important and personal documents travel haphazardly on our portable companion. And that’s more data than we’ve already entrusted to our personal computer at home. However, although the operating systems of these terminals are leading in terms of security and there is more control over the installations made, according to a report from the security firm Zimperium, 23% of mobile phones worldwide have malware. We have quickly adapted to the mobility of devices, data and even work, yes, but the security measures to be implemented in these situations are still a pending issue.
