HAVANA, Cuba, Aug 26 (ACN) The Segurmática Enterprise, and the antivirus it develops, offer coverage against one hundred percent of the threats that enter Cuba, in which the collaboration of the country's users has been fundamental.
The company's premise is to respond up to 72 hours after reporting a new malicious program, although sometimes the delay is a little longer given the complexity of the attacker program, said Niurka Edith Milanés Sarduy, general director of the company, exclusively to ACN.
She added that the most common route of infection in Cuba is webmail, and ransomware and Trojan horses stand out. In the case of the former, we have had numerous cases in which access to its system is restricted and the payment of a ransom is required to remove the restriction.
She also drew attention to phishing, a program that is entering Cuba or being used in non-secure networks to obtain confidential information such as usernames, passwords and credit card details pretending to be a reliable and legitimate communication.
She said that the company's threat detection work and the generation of solutions is also nourished by feedback, since many people, customers or not, send reports of malicious programs or other suspects.
So far this year alone we have received more than 600 notifications of this type, more than twice as many as in the same period last year, he argued.
She commented that in addition to the number, the complexity of the threats has also grown.
As the Cuban computerization policy states, cybersecurity is one of the pillars on which the programs executed on the island must be based, an issue for which companies are preparing to support and make safe the steps taken on this path.
Milanés Sarduy commented that the massive number of connections by natural persons and their not always conscious actions represent a challenge for the security of sensitive equipment and information.
In this context and to respond to the call of the country, we focus on increasing services, as well as increasing more detection levels, she stressed.
