Digital transformation has taken technology to all areas of our lives, today we can't do almost anything without the internet. In this way, computer security, or just cybersecurity, is a topic that is on the rise and developing more and more, especially in the corporate world, since no company wants to suffer the loss of having a cyber-attack.

Cybersecurity is what we're going to talk about in today's article. Come check it out to stay on top of all the advances that are happening in this area.


Cybersecurity is the protection of computer systems from theft or damage to hardware, software, or electronic data, as well as the interruption or disruption of the services they provide.

Cybersecurity helps corporations have a more robust and reliable technology infrastructure. With this infrastructure, companies can reduce risk and optimize the workflow of the IT team.

The main objectives of cybersecurity actions are the following:

- Protect the IT infrastructure from possible attacks by external agents;
- Optimizing the IT team's workflow so that it is able to easily identify security breaches and threats;
- Give teams the resources they need to mitigate possible attacks and reduce their losses.

A company that manages to do all these actions decreases the chances of falling victim to cyber-attacks. As a result, the IT infrastructure will be more reliable, which allows the business to bring the technology to more environments.


Currently, cybersecurity is essential for the proper functioning of any company. Since it guarantees the proper functioning of the IT infrastructure, without risk to users and the company.

Here are a few more reasons a company should invest in cybersecurity:

- Increased productivity as teams will be able to use the technology in more locations, increasing the level of business automation;

- More scalability because the company will be able to use the technology in a scalable way, helping in the rapid expansion of its operations whenever necessary;

- More mobility as teams that work remotely will be able to use their resources to the fullest, which increases productivity, for example in the home office;

- Fewer interruptions in operations involving IT as attacks will be less frequent, which leads to a scenario where there are fewer interruptions caused by unforeseen events.

In this way, the company will function better and be more efficient.


Here are some benefits cybersecurity can bring to your business:

- Business protection against cyber-attacks and data breaches;
- Data and network protection;
- Prevention of access by unauthorized users;
- Improved recovery time after a breach;
- Protection for end users and terminal devices;
- Regulatory compliance;
- Business continuity;
- Greater confidence in the company's reputation and trust for developers, partners, customers, stakeholders, and employees.


Hackers challenge the cybersecurity of companies daily. Issues such as data loss, privacy, risk management and changes in cybersecurity strategies are part of the routine of a large company. Unfortunately, the number of cyber-attacks is not expected to decrease, even more so with the increase in entry points for attacks, as with the arrival of the internet of things (IoT), it is necessary to further protect the networks and devices.

One of the biggest problems of cybersecurity is that when new technologies emerge or different ways of using an existing technology, new avenues of attack are developed. And being able to keep cybersecurity up to date on an ongoing basis can be very challenging, especially for smaller organizations without in-house staff or resources.

Another issue is user education, as employees can accidentally bring viruses into the workplace on their computers or mobile devices. Security awareness training helps employees do their part to keep your business safe from cyber threats.

One of the biggest challenges for cybersecurity is the lack of qualified personnel in this area. As we have already said, it is an area that is on the rise and the demand for qualified labor is far beyond expectations.


With the increase in cyber threats, one solution found by companies was automation and the use of AI to improve cybersecurity in the three areas below:

- Threat Detection - AI can analyze data and recognize threats.
- Threat Response - AI automatically creates and applies security protections.
- Human augmentation - AI helps eliminate alert fatigue by automatically triaging low-risk alarms and automating big data analysis and other repetitive tasks, freeing up humans for more sophisticated tasks.

Other benefits of automation in cybersecurity include attack classification, malware classification, traffic analysis, compliance analysis, and more.


With the continuous growth of new threats, such as IoT threats, professionals with cybersecurity knowledge and hardware and software skills are increasingly needed.

The main professionals in the technology area that are sought today to work with Cybersecurity are:

- Chief Security Office (CSO) - is responsible for the physical and cybersecurity of a company.

- Chief Information Security Officer (CISO) - who implements the security program across an organization and oversees the operations of the IT security department.

- Security Engineer - is the one who protects the company's assets against threats with a focus on quality control within the IT infrastructure.

- Security Architect - is responsible for planning, analyzing, designing, testing, maintaining, and supporting a company's critical infrastructure.

- Security Analyst - is the person who plans security measures and controls, protects digital files, and conducts internal and external security audits.

- Penetration tester (Penetration testers) - is the famous ethical hacker, it is he/she who tests the security of systems, network and applications, looking for vulnerabilities that can be exploited by malicious agents.

- Threat hunter (Threat hunters) - is the threat analyst who tries to discover vulnerabilities and attacks and prevent them before they compromise a business.

Other cybersecurity professionals are: security consultants, data protection officer, cloud security architects, security operations manager managers and analysts, security investigators, cryptographers and security administrators.

If you are interested in this area, it is worth studying and specializing, as it is growing a lot and the demand for qualified professionals is very high.
