Qualified digital certificate: essential against cyber-attacks

Escrito por: Marta Estudillo Fecha Tuesday 17, August 2021 Categoría: Digital Certificate

Cases of cyber-attacks are a daily reality. Now that most companies and corporations are present in the online environment, their digital identity must be shielded against such attacks.

The use of a qualified digital certificate is becoming more and more widespread due to the convenience, trust and security it provides through the electronic evidence that can be collected during the signing process. In this way, shielding the security of our company at the click of a button is now more than posible thanks to the qualified digital certificate.

Importance of investing in security tools

Faced with the execution of cyber-attacks, it is essential to follow a roadmap designed to improve the digital security of each organization:

  • Implement layers of security
  • Protect equipment with updated software and systems.
  • Invest in digital tools and cloud security services.

But it is a reality: the number of cyberattacks on companies skyrocketed after the pandemic began. In Spain, the National Cybersecurity Institute reported the registration of 130,000 serious incidents in 2020, an increase of 24% over the previous year.

Companies of high prestige and recognition such as Adif, Vueling or the Galician pharmaceutical company Zendal have suffered high-profile cases of cyber-attacks where both internal data and customer information were exposed, with the consequent economic costs that resulted from these problems.

How to shield security? Qualified digital certificate and centralization in the cloud

In the current context, both digitalization and cybersecurity have become two essential aspects in the daily management of any company, as they provide tranquility and confidence to the employer, employees and customers. The qualified digital certificate guarantees the highest level of security at all times, as it has been issued by a qualified signature creation device (QSCD). This type of certificate incorporates data that verify the identity of the holder and provide legal validity to the actions carried out with him.

Companies that choose to use tools such as the centralized digital certificate are committed to quality and maximum security in the processes, either to carry out procedures with customers, suppliers, public administrations… or to protect themselves against cyber-attacks.

Therefore, we can affirm that the great current challenge is to work digitally in a safe and completely protected way against these possible cyber-attacks such as identity theft, fraud, falsification or manipulation of documents, etc., with the support of a Qualified Trusted Service Provider according to the eIDAS (EU) regulation, No. 910/2014, which highlights the uso of the qualified digital certificate.

Working with this type of service allows the company as a whole to operate with the guarantee that employees use the certificates they have access to and for specific purposes. This means, in turn, a safeguard against any malpractice by an employee. IvSign makes the information on electronic evidence available for you to consult and download at any time.
