Bitdefender is one of the most prominent brands in the world of computer security and its “Bitdefender Total Security”, one of the most interesting solutions to protect our computers against any attack by malware. We begin this week’s MuySeguridad Recaps analyzing what news we find in the new version of this solution and how it compares to other alternatives that we can find in the market.
We continue with the interview we have had with Iván Rodríguez, head of Data Protection Solutions at Dell Technologies Spain, who has told us about the level of threats that companies have to expect for next year and how they can prepare to respond quota.
We also tell you why Apple has sued NSO Group and what possibilities technology has of achieving a victory in court; or how a new campaign of phishing has targeted the self-employed and their relationship with the Tax Agency. We started!

Iván Rodríguez (Head of Data Protection Solutions Dell Technologies Spain): “It is to be expected that cyberattack attempts on companies will continue to increase”
Although as a general rule we usually associate Dell Technologies with hardware, technology also has an important presence in the field of cybersecurity, with both proactive approaches, to avoid unauthorized intrusions, as well as reactive ones, to guarantee a fast and effective response plan in the event of an incident.

Malware against freelancers: The Tax Agency does not send invoices by mail
The Tax Agency is one of the organizations that receives the most identity theft attempts. Cybercriminals try to take advantage of the “fear” that the Treasury or a lack of response to its requirements causes any taxpayer. Although it is a crude attempt, like the last one detected by the National Cybersecurity Institute.
Ironchip and Open Cloud Factory: strength is united
Collaboration between companies in the cybersecurity sector is a white blackbird to which special attention must be paid, since on many occasions the resulting whole is greater than the sum of the parts. And if such a result is positive in any area, if we transfer it to the cybersecurity environment, it is directly worth celebrating. And today we can talk about a case like this, and that also happens in our country, with the strategic alliance signed between Ironchip and Open Cloud Factory.
Apple sues NSO Group over Pegasus

It is true that the announcement of NeuralHash as a system to try to combat CSAM caused quite a bit of controversy, since the company wanted to monitor the content that users upload to their iCloud accounts, something that we already warned about at the time. However, and in response to the criticism, Apple chose to delay its application, in order to gather more information and opinions, in search of a more privacy-friendly solution.

Over and over again, cybersecurity companies alert us to cyber threats in the market. Attacks where ransomware is the protagonist, increasingly sophisticated tools and new families where people are simulated to achieve very specific objectives. However, as partners we must also look to those environments where manufacturers offer additional value.
