  • The #EsteVirusloParamosUnidos (WeShallStopThisVirusTogether) initiative has been launched by students of Enigma 6.0, the training program in cybersecurity of the S2 Grupo, to thank the tireless work of all health personnel working to strengthen their cybersecurity.
  • Its objective is to give advice to prevent them from falling into the networks of cybercriminals, since it has been detected that since the beginning of the confinement there has been the largest wave in the history of phishing-type cyberattacks.
  • This action is part of #Evoluciona2, the S2 Grupo's CSR program that brings together the values that unite all the people in the company and their desire to develop the business, taking into account how to add value to society as a whole.

Valencia, May 7, 2020.- The Valencian cybersecurity company, S2 Grupo, has launched the “Digital PPE” campaign to raise awareness in the health sector and help keep them protected from the action of cybercriminals. Specifically, this initiative has been launched by students of Enigma 6.0, the company's cybersecurity training program. “The healthcare sector is currently one of the most threatened, not only by the Covid-19 crisis, but also by cybercriminals. During this health crisis, the cyberattacks on the most critical infrastructures, such as hospitals, have increased and have not stopped growing and, although we continually work to protect these environments, the students of Enigma 6.0 have wanted to share some advice, digital PPE, which they have created so that health personnel only have to focus on the most important thing, which is health”, explained José Rosell, managing partner of S2 Grupo. “It is essential that all personnel in this area increase, even more, the security measures with which they use any technology connected to the network. It does not matter whether it is an email, a message or any application that they use in their work, because a connected device can be a gateway to the cybercriminal if it is not used appropriately", informed Miguel Ángel Juan, managing-partner-director of S2 Grupo. Experts from the company have pointed out that we are currently experiencing the largest wave of phishing scams, for example, and falling victim to them can put our health sector in a very delicate position. For this reason, Enigma 6.0 students have decided to help all staff in this field in general by providing some key advice they can take at work to be more protected. These are tips that, in medical terminology, we could call digital PPEs. The #EsteVirusloParamosUnidos campaign and recommendations can be found through the following video:  These consist of:

  1. Avoid opening spam mail
  2. Be very careful about links referring to information about Covid-19
  3. Verify the origin of any email received
  4. Be very careful with emails written in languages not common in our day to day, including misspellings or messages that seem strange to us
  5. Only put your data on official websites
  6. Do not click on any link contained in an email. It is advisable to write it directly in the browser

About Enigma It is a school of cybersecurity experts created by the S2 Grupo and is a pioneer in the sector.
