“ This is the reason why investments in information security are increasingly urgent . This should be a priority for companies but there are few that really integrate cybersecurity into the corporate culture ,” said Telles .
The main challenges for implementing information security measures , according to the survey , are employee compliance ( 40 %), high investment ( 31 %) and convincing decision-makers ( 24 %).
“ In most cases , it is common for employees , due to lack of knowledge and preparation , to be phishing targets ,” said Telles .
“ Therefore , it is important to offer regular training on risks and best practices for network use and data sharing . Managers and leaders need to be involved in the process to ensure that cybersecurity knowledge is part of daily life .”
The scenario shows that the topic of cybersecurity is now addressed as a business strategy in most companies .
The study indicates that 79 % of companies invest in internal awareness programs about information security , offering corporate campaigns ( 40 %), lectures on information security for employees ( 36 %) and targeted and controlled phishing ( 12 %).
The information security scenario in Brazil
With the massive adoption of remote work , cyberattacks have occurred more frequently in companies and institutions of all sizes .
“ The scenario shows that the topic of cybersecurity is now addressed as a business strategy in most companies ,” said the CEO .
However , according to Telles , there is still room for enhancement just as transposing internal awareness and development programs and investing in the implementation of new tools focused on information security , such as the Bug Bounty .
“ The study clearly shows that there is still room for Brazilian companies to enhance security against cyberattacks ,” concluded Telles . p
