We’re committed to training.

At WISE, we are committed to training the cybersecurity professionals of the future. This is why part of our team takes part as trainers in some of the country’s most important universities.

Our CEO, Domingo Cardona, is a professor of the Masters in Cybersecurity Management at UPC on the subject of “Cybersecurity Governance”. He also lectures on the same subject in the UPC-VIU Inter-University Masters on IT Security.

At both universities, these courses are supported by our Service and Account Manager, Juanjo Pérez, who also participates in these subject areas, ensuring that students are trained in good governance and CIT risk management.

Furthermore, our partner Cristian Barrientos, Security Analyst at WISE, teaches one of the modules of the subject “Security in mobile devices” on the Masters degree course for IT and Information Security Specialists at UCLM and “Ethical Hacking” in IT Security Masters at UPC-VIU.

And Diego Jurado, also a Security Analyst, lectures at the ULCM, on one of the modules of “Website Auditing” in the Masters degree for Specialists in IT and Information Security.

Companies are increasingly aware of the cyber-risks they are facing in this new digital age. The latest mass attacks, so-called WannaCry, have only emphasised this and put companies on high alert. This is why demand for cybersecurity is on the up and, with it, the need for specialised professionals.

For all these reasons, it is clear that universities are giving more and more importance to cybersecurity, making it one of the mainstays of college Engineering faculties. For our part, we will continue with our commitment to training professionals in these fields to cater for the new demands and needs of the sector.

Xavi Pes talks about risks of AI on mobiles

 

Did you know about possible data leaks from virtual assistants? Siri is not so trustworthy and our account manager, Xavi Pes, explains where the dangers of Artificial Intelligence lie when it comes to mobile phones.

Every day, mobile devices are increasingly present in the corporate world. And apps, full of sensitive corporate data (emails, calendars, documents, oncloud…). However, mobiles are still not considered the main target for cyber attacks and their security is one step behind compared to other professional equipment: They have no anti-viruses or firewalls… And virtual assistants can play tricks on users without them even knowing it.

Apps y malware: Por qué las apps pueden presentar malware y cómo mitigar este riesgo

 

 

Los dispositivos móviles son cada vez más populares, son utilizados por más gente y con fines más diversos. Esto incluye desde acceder a la banca online, mensajería de todo tipo o navegar por Internet, hasta hacer fotos o tomar notas.

Todo ello implica que los desarrolladores de malware hayan enfocado su objetivo a este tipo de dispositivos. ¿Por qué? Es un negocio. ¿Qué sacan ellos? Obtener credenciales bancarias, datos sensibles, incrustar publicidad no deseada e incluso utilizar dichos terminales para realizar ataques de Denegación de Servicio.

Además, muchas de las aplicaciones maliciosas tienen la capacidad de modificar su comportamiento y de descargar nuevo malware, por lo que realizar las acciones anteriormente mencionadas es cada día más sencillo.

Explotamos la vulnerabilidad CVE-2017-11882 de Microsoft Office

 

Durante los últimos días, nuestros compañeros Diego Jurado y Miguel Tuñón han explotado la vulnerabilidad CVE-2017-11882 de Microsoft Office, descubierta por el equipo de investigación de Embedi, y que permite a un atacante ejecutar código arbitrario de manera remota (RCE) en el contexto del usuario actual, dado que no se gestionan adecuadamente los objetos en memoria (“Microsoft Office Memory Corruption Vulnerability”).

Esta vulnerabilidad reside en el antiguo “editor de ecuaciones” de Microsoft Office (EQNEDT32.EXE). Esta herramienta permite a los usuarios embeber ecuaciones matemáticas dentro de documentos de Office como objetos OLE dinámicos.
