Top risks for SMEs and options to mitigate them within reach of your budget
Cybersecurity is an issue that remains on the agenda of all organizations in the 2021, and this year the attacks are not expected to decrease; Unlike, with the challenges of teleworking it is expected to increase; as shown by 1.3 million ransomware attacks that Mexico suffered in the year 2020 affecting approximately 300,000 Business. As the frequency of security incidents continues to escalate, the magnitude of the impacts related to them requires that companies face cybersecurity risks at the executive level with a strategic approach.
But what happens when an organization does not justify the investment of keeping a full-time CISO in their organization? (Chief Information Security Officer), that person or function that is in charge of designing and ensuring that the necessary security controls are implemented for each organization, to meet this need, more and more companies turn to the CISOaaS scheme (CISO as a Service), in which they acquire a customized cybersecurity expert team and for whom they pay only for the time they require, thus giving them the perfect balance between their level of security, risks and costs.
