Cybersecurity encompasses the set of measures aimed at the digital protection of companies, individuals and systems against digital attacks and incidents.
Cyberphysical systems connected directly or indirectly to the Internet require reliable concepts and technologies to ensure the security, privacy, and protection of knowledge. Therefore, it is crucial to have reliable and secure communications, along with a sophisticated identity and robust access management to devices, applications and systems. Today, companies have a large digital presence, either publicly exposed via the Internet or internally through computer systems to manage internal data and processes. Not being able to effectively protect against new threats exposes today’s companies to the loss of confidential information, to a negative impact on their own brand, to their inability to conduct business, and to violating specific laws. Such as the new data protection regulations, which are subject to severe penalties. A very powerful example of technology applied in cybersecurity is distributed logging technologies (DLT), better known as blockchain.
