In this post we will talk about key concepts of the different areas of cybersecurity and how the current context makes qualified profiles in this field highly demanded professionals.

Cybersecurity vs Cyber ​​Forensics or Computer Forensics

Prevention or defense. Cybersecurity and Computer Forensics are two different areas within the protection of information systems and digital assets. Both, necessary to maintain the computer security of organizations.

If we refer to cybersecurity, we are talking about how to protect our company from cyberattacks. That is, of all those actions and measures aimed at having and maintaining a robust information security system.

Now, what happens when the organization has already been the victim of a cyberattack? That’s when the team comes into play. computer forensic analysis which must determine the causes and restore the situation. That is the mission of the forensic investigator and among his functions are those of: identifying the attack, the source, collecting evidence and recovering the compromised data.

In this video about official course of EC-Council Computer Hacking Investigator (CHFI) of EC- Council that we impart from PUE you will understand quickly and in a few minutes what does a forensic investigator do and what is the main objective of computer forensics: discover what has happened, why it has happened and be able to determine an action plan so that it does not happen again.

In a digital society where a large amount of data circulates, the need to protect it is no longer an option.

Hackers break into a company’s business by accessing, changing, or destroying information. Actions they carry out using different types of cyber attacks such as ‘DDos’ (based on overloading a system by injecting it with massive traffic) or the ‘Ransomware’capable of encrypting all data in a system.

Recent studies by different cybersecurity companies have reported on the increase in the amounts of ransoms requested by cybercriminals behind the use of the ‘ransomware’ to the affected companies. Some studies They even maintain that the profits generated by this type of virus during 2020 rose 300% compared to the previous year.

Given this context, expert professionals in Cybersecurity and Computer Forensics are among the most demanded and necessary profiles at that time for all types of organization: government entities, non-profit organizations, corporations, private companies, etc. Whatever the sector or industry, it is essential to take the necessary measures and have qualified profiles to avoid vulnerability to these cyber attacks that are becoming more frequent.

What are the security measures that a company should follow?

According to INCIBE (National Institute of Cybersecurity in Spain) these are the measures that a company should follow to guarantee high security quotas in its systems:

  • Carry out audits frequently: 9 out of 10 audits are requested after suffering a hack.
  • Have a Security Master Plan: A tool that allows establishing a corporate guide for the coordinated implementation of security measures associated with risk reduction.
  • Run a disaster recovery simulation every 3 months
  • Hide and secure your perimeter (login page).
  • Have 2 firewalls of different brands.
  • Have 3 backups, one of them being offline.
  • Invest more in engineering (security design) and not so much in iron (tools or heavy software).
  • Do not open emails from strangers

In the event of a ransomware attack, companies that comply with these recommendations should be operational again within 72 hours to 1 week after the attack.
