Mikel Santos, cybersecurity expert at PA Consulting Group, discusses cybersecurity challenges in Latin America and areas for improvement in Mexico.
Mikel says: "There is no knowledge and there is escalation of cyber incidents that occur, the impact they have and how they can be fought. It is very important to be able to share information, see how threats can be treated at industry level and private level. Public sector in Mexico is behind in this regard."
Mikel notes that it is important to establish the legal framework that forces entities and organizations to share information and report incidents: "It is fundamental that there is a legal support. A regulation is needed to promote the need to comply with all of this, that the public and private sector must collaborate, impel that there should be a communication throughout the cycle of an incident, from the Detection and prevention until the responses to incidents so that they do not repeat them, so that everyone can learn it and improve communication between both sectors. There has to be a fundamental regulation that forces this to happen because this is the most basic way to start developing a culture.”
