Cybersecurity is one of the most important and urgent issues in the digital age we live in. Every day, problems related to cybersecurity breaches increase in number and sophistication, having increased by 38% in Europe during 2022.

In this context, the need for individuals and organisations to take proactive measures to protect their data and systems is growing. We must take into account the relevance of cybersecurity in a hyper-connected society as more and more devices are connected to the internet and more and more companies are connecting to external systems.

“Deep Tech” companies are a good example, especially those linked to sectors such as science, technology, biology or medicine, which work with very sensitive data related to patients, clinical trials, etc., making them an attractive target for cyber attacks.

In many cases, vulnerabilities come from errors in software design, which is why it is so important to create secure applications and systems by applying cybersecurity best practices from the beginning of their development or creation. Every line of code that is created for the development of software can be a gateway for cybercriminals, so we work at all points of development to ensure the highest possible security.

It is precisely these security breaches in a company that can lead to substantial financial losses for the company, as well as loss of confidence in the organisation and the exposure of confidential company and employee data.


The SSDLC method to avoid cracks

Over the past few years, the Secure Software Development Lifecycle (SSDLC) approach to secure software development has gained traction within enterprises. SSDLC methodology involves implementing security controls and measures during the design, coding and testing stages to reduce the vulnerability of hardware to cyber attacks.

At ERNI, we are always committed to the SSDLC method, as it guarantees that cybersecurity is a priority in all phases of the process. This means applying it from the taking of requirements at the cybersecurity level, through risk analysis, product development, validation and testing, with review of critical points before going into final production.
