Become aware

In this new post we want to introduce you to the new awareness web site concienciaTBut we could not tell you about this web of awareness, without first introducing you to who is behind that web. This is an initiative of CSIRT-CV(Center for Response to incidents and cybersecurity of the Valencian Community) which, as it appears on its website, “is born as a commitment of the Generalitat Valenciana to security in the network” offering its services to citizens, SMEs and Public Administrations of the Valencian Community.

Given the objective of training and raising awareness of the site, from our blog we want to make public concienciaT so that you have another reference when you want to look for any information related to cybersecurity.


ConcienciaT is divided into several sections. Upon entering the new portal the publication of two videos draws attention, which make us see the risks to which we can expose our data when we surf the Internet. We recommend that you see them because they are very instructive and fun.


WhatsApp limits its use to children under 16, but …

As we update our WhatsApp application during these days, we will all be getting a notice about the new conditions that we must accept. The biggest novelty that we will find is the obligation to declare that we are at least 16 years old. It is an essential requirement to continue using the service.

This change in the conditions of use is due to the imminent entry into force of the new General Regulation of Data Protection (RGPD) of the European Union (EU), which will take effect from May 25 on.

Defender Tips to keep Windows 10 safer. Check Windows Defender

Windows 10 is the most used operating system in the world to make our computers run. That is the main reason why it becomes a constant target for most cyber-attacks and will remain so while its hegemony lasts.

Microsoft has done a good job with the protection systems with which this version of its Windows has been provided. However, it is the user himself who has the ultimate responsibility that the system works under the safe guidelines with which it is defined and for that, he must take care to keep it as up-to-date and “sound” as possible.

Revisa Windows Defender

Let’s review the main security features of our Windows 10 and check that everything works as it should. In general, it will be sufficient for us to periodically look at the information provided by the Windows Defender security program.

Today again we publish a post written by one of our readers. It is the second one that he sends us to share it in our blog. Remember that our readers can make use of the blog sectionWrite your post and we will publish it for you“.
We hope you find it useful.
We thank once again the “Independent Researcher” for his collaboration with this blog :)

 In this article we will try to explain how we can eliminate information published on the Internet over the years, some with permission and other without it. To begin with, I would like to say that what is presented here is intended for the countries of the European Union (EU) where a law of Data Protection governs more extensive than elsewhere in the world, especially the so-called ‘Right to Oblivion’. However, it should be noted that in some cases you can also request deletion when the website is hosted outside the EU. Finally, I will explain that there are websites that until the date of publication of this article it is not possible to contact the administrator of the page since the email address is protected thanks to applications that have that function.


Use the Wi-Fi network for guests of your router for security

How they use Facebook information to manipulate us

Facebook information has been used to manipulate its users. This is the emphatic assertion that we can draw when knowing the details of the scandal in which Facebook and the British company Cambridge Analityca have been involved.

Mobile malware, the big business of cybercriminals

Mobile malware has been the threat that has provided the most money to cybercriminals in recent times, as attacks through this malicious software are able to remain hidden for longer periods of time, compared to attacks against computers (ransomware). This is the conclusion drawn by experts from the security firm Check Point, who point out that Judy, a virus that infected millions of Android smartphones last year, thanks to its presence in more than 40 applications of the Play Store, remained operational during one year, while WannaCry, for example, did not exceed the month.
