The world breathes, smells, tastes, listens and, of course, speaks. He speaks with data that allows us to know how he is in health in multiple areas: the economic, the social, the technological and, obviously, the ecological. Minsait, a digital transformation consultant, has this reality in mind, which she names with a hybrid concept, symbiont: what phygital. That is to say, the conjunction of the intangible spaces, those that inhabit the cloud, with the physical, real world, which provides data to that cloud to revolutionize all the human activities that we can imagine.
A shield against cybercrime
Entering the digital world cannot be done in any way. You have to wear the right armor and shield. The Minsat and SIA Ascendant report on cybersecurity estimates that 56% of companies still put their future at risk by lacking a defined cybersecurity strategy. And that is just the tip of the iceberg of a long lack in this matter: 90% of companies do not have professionals specialized in this matter; 82% do not have an updated record of all the digital assets to be protected; 73% do not have cyber risk awareness mechanisms for employees and only 55% have a cybersecurity operations center to detect and respond to attacks. This context is doubly worrying when the same report indicates that practices such as phishing (sending emails impersonating identities) have increased by 6,000% during the pandemic.
