The ten actions you should take to cyber protect your organization



We have observed that various cyber attacks targeting organizations in a wide range of sectors, including financial, hospitality, banking, education and healthcare, among others, frequently occur.


Maintaining our company without a cybersecurity policy and without allocating a budget for this purpose is a situation that we can no longer afford, given that inaction carries a high risk of suffering significant economic losses. It is important to remember that the main motivation behind these cyberattacks is usually monetary in nature, and any profit obtained by cybercriminals is considered a success for them.


We know that not all companies can afford to have a robust cybersecurity strategy, we share ten actions that you can start taking today to protect your company. At CyberLat we can help you define, adapt and manage what is best for your organization, and train your employees.


  1. Awareness and training: Educating employees about cyber threats, safe online practices, and how to recognize malicious emails and links is critical.

  2. Keep software up to date: Ensure that all operating systems, software and applications are up to date with the latest security patches.

  3. Firewalls and antivirus: Deploy reliable firewalls and antivirus software on all computers and servers to detect and block threats.

  4. Robust password policy: Require strong passwords and change them regularly. Use two-factor authentication when possible.

  5. Regular Backups: Make frequent backups of critical data and store them off-site to prevent information loss in the event of an attack.

  6. Access control: Limit access to systems and data only to employees who need it and revoke such access when it is no longer necessary.

  7. Security Audit: Conduct regular security audits to identify vulnerabilities and weaknesses in the IT infrastructure.

  8. Patch and update management: Have a robust process to manage security updates and patches in a timely manner.

  9. Threat Monitoring: Use threat detection tools and constantly monitor systems for unusual activity.

  10. Incident response plan: Have a plan in the event of a cyberattack that includes procedures to effectively contain, investigate and remediate the incident.
