Although it is true that currently most of the companies and workers keep in mind the importance of cybersecurity, it is key to bear in mind that throughout the Internet almost everything is vulnerable.
Today 30th of November, the International Information Security Day; a date celebrated since 1988, year when the first network malware propagation was registered.
Although it is true that currently most of the companies and workers keep in mind the importance of cybersecurity, it is key to bear in mind that throughout the Internet almost everything is vulnerable, so it is essential to have better security systems, as well as training courses for employees. No one is exempt from training courses for employees. No one is exempt from suffering a failure in their systems or being victim of a hacking.
We discussed that the 30th of November was chosen as the date to be remembered since it was the first time a malware was detected. Particularly it was a virus known as a "Morris worm" and whose impact was such that it affected 10% of the computers connected at the time to Arpanet. In the face of such an impact, the International Association of IT professionals, investigators and trainers, the ACM decided on that date with the aim of raising awareness through actions at business and educational levels on the importance of protecting information by implementing system security measures.

Although we as a society have made improvements regarding cybersecurity, those from the dark side have also put their heads together and also keep on leveling up. Attacks are increasingly more diverse ans sophisticated and, moreover the number of elements connected to the network is increasing, which makes the chances of suffering an attack more likely.
In the face of the risks that surround us and those companies have to deal with, it is important to know what measures to take. The key is all about strengthening the process and procedure structure that allows to integrate technologies and people to follow up the whole livecycle of a threat, from an attacker that seeks the main access to a system until they achive the data breach or some other kind of impact. For that it is essential to consider to enable several technology layers that allow to have visibility before, during and after any attack.
