A good digital security policy not only guarantees more reliability for the IT infrastructure, but also brings competitiveness to the business. In addition, if the processes are properly structured, the company will be able to align with rules on the subject and avoid fines.
In this sense, a good way to structure digital security processes is to know the main threats. Check out the four biggest risks below and be forewarned!
Ransomware is a type of malware that has gained momentum in recent years and that can cause great damage to the company. Its attack has the main characteristic of blocking access to internal files (usually through encryption) and requiring a payment for the restoration of data. In addition, it can take advantage of failures to automatically replicate and extend its reach.
Protection against ransomware can be achieved through a series of combined measures. Among the most traditional, are anti-phishing, regular backup with restore test and software update. In addition, it is necessary to conduct training and other employee awareness events (in addition to constant communication) to increase security, preventing, for example, users from opening files infected with this threat.

2. Pirated software
The use of pirated software has fallen out of favor with the spread of cloud computing and the licensing of software as a service. However, this is still a reality for several companies, which is a serious problem.
Pirated applications do not contain any digital security guarantees. As its source code is modified by third parties, there is no way for the company to guarantee that there are no mechanisms for theft of internal data. In addition, because they do not support updates, the company is exposed to attacks that exploit known vulnerabilities.
3. Systems not updated
Failure to update systems can put all teams at risk. This is a routine ignored by many companies, but it is capable of opening up to a range of digital security threats, since many attacks are structured to exploit known issues that have not been fixed in time.
Therefore, always create a routine to find, test, validate and apply updates with agility and precision. Thus, the company will be able to reduce risks and make the environment safer for its professionals, customers, partners and shareholders.
