Malaga Malware Update: A total of 28,936 devices with internet access are affected in Malaga by some kind of cybersecurity problem. The data from the Institute of Cybersecurity places Malaga province second in Andalucía for the number of infections on internet capable devices.
According to the latest Google report, ‘Panorama actual de la Ciberseguridad en España’, an extensive document resulting from a long investigation in which several conclusions stand out, among them, amazingly, that three out of every 10 IT managers in SME’s (small to medium enterprises) in Spain are unaware of the concept of cybersecurity!?! The report says: “Almost 3 million companies in Spain have little or no protection against hackers.” In addition it says: “Two-thirds of Spanish companies lack enough employees to combat cyberspace threats.” Full details at: https://www.euroweeklynews.com/2019/11/06/be-internet-secure/
