In times when some promote the Zero Trust as the security model of the future, Javier Diaz Evans, the global general manager of the cybersecurity company, A3Sec, focuses its efforts on trust model management. 

“I don't like the concept of Zero Trust, because there will never be zero trust in anything” affirms Javier Díaz Evans.

A3Sec, let's remember, is a business group of Spanish origin and with a presence in Mexico, Colombia and Ecuador, specializing in cybersecurity that seeks to "shield" the digital assets of companies.

"Zero trust is useless, because relationships, having partners and customers, are based on that, on trust and what we have to do is manage it". The manager affirms, who adds that there are two great models of trust. 

"A model in which you give 100% trust and take it away based on actionsThink of a personal relationship, a friend, a partner, etc. And every time they make a mistake, you take it away. And there is the other one of zero trust where you give certain types of access and depending on the actions you increase it”.

Another cybersecurity trend, highlighted by Díaz Evans, is thehe evolution of the security perimeter and how it has evolved from a traditional scheme, similar to a castle that must be defended, to new models based on the segregation of zones and the analytics. 

But this technological evolution was also affected, like many other sectors, by the pandemic.

Cybersecurity after confinement

Among the innumerable consequences produced by Covid-19 came one that no one expected: an acceleration in the Digital Transformation of millions of companies. However, this also brought challenges, including security.

“Cybersecurity incidents have skyrocketed since the pandemic. We have had increases, year by year, doubling the number of reported incidents. What happened was that we focused a lot on that transformation, on that digitization of business, and cybersecurity lagged a bit behind." says Diaz.

This situation caused an increase in the so-called attack surface. Remember that this surface is defined as the physical and digital assets of an organization that could be compromised by an attacker

Or put another way, this digitization of assets, and the arrival on the market of more and more electronic devices, created a bigger target for cybercriminals.

Finally, Díaz highlights other trends such as the use of Artificial Intelligence and the challenges that quantum computing faces as a technology that could transform the way we use cryptography and the enormous impact that this could bring to the cybersecurity market. .
