Digital signatures are increasingly used in companies and public administrations. However, without adequate cybersecurity measures, this method can be a vector for cybercriminals and fraudsters: through social engineering they can dupe signer victims into believing a document is legitimate and, through their signature, obtain authorization to carry out other operations without their consent, among many other malicious activities. So, how can we avoid this?

Organizations of all sizes are struggling to keep up with the increasingly complex and evolving cybersecurity landscape.

Small-to-midsize businesses disproportionately fall victim to ransomware, as they often lack the technical skills and tools needed to prevent infection.
